Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 66794
mc-problem, mcedit segfaults
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:43:13 EDT
Description of Problem:
Mila beta2: mc looks very weird, with lots of wrong characters. When trying to
edit a file, mcedit segfaults.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
all the time - I think...
Steps to Reproduce:
1. from console run mc
2. trying to edit a file with F4 or "mcedit"
mc has funny characters and some double/extra characters. mcedit segfaults.
The bug is still present in Limbo - makes it impossible to use mc.
Most likely mc never worked in multibyte locales and breaks in UTF-8. You might
try LANG=en_US.ISO-8859-1 and see if the bug goes away.
The characters look OK, but copying in mc (F5) segfaults and mcedit (or F4) hangs still with
Limbo2 RedHat 7.3.93: Copying is working, but mcedit (and F4) is not working
and causes the console to hang.
