Description of problem:
When I type 'man fontconfig'
Iconv: illegal input sequence at position 214
This happens for some man pages, not for others (man ls is fine)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Iconv incomplete ?
This bug does not seem to involve an unsupported IDE chipset,
as hdparm -t /dev/hda
returns normal values.
Go back to older kernel
rpm -ivh --oldpackage kernel-2.4.18-27.8.0.i686.rpm
Sorry previous additional comment was meant for other bug.
Oddly enough, running "man:fontconfig" in KDE -- using Konqueror as man page
viewer -- displays the fontconfig manpage just fine.
fontconfig man page is gone as of fontconfig-2.2.1. Reassigning to
man since it looks like 'fontconfig' was just an example of the
man-pages version 1.58-1 seems to have fixed the iconv problems that have been
[lukasz@lt lukasz]$ rpm -q man
When we try type `man 2 umask`
iconv: illegal input sequence at position 1518
man from redhat/rawhide man-1.5k-12 is OK.
