does this work in xterm? If yes, please reassign to component ncurses...

Comment 2 Thomas E. Dickey 2003-01-11 19:52:55 UTC
Actually it's a combination: Redhat 8.0 UTF-8 locales with the Linux console emulator.  I made some workarounds which are in the 20021231 rollup patch for ncurses at ftp://invisible-island.net/ncurses/5.3 -- however since Redhat doesn't deliver ncurses 5.3, doesn't build a Unicode-capable version of ncurses, someone needs to repair the corresponding RPM's.  (The phoebe snapshot still has the ncurses 5.2 20020406 snapshot).

Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2003-01-12 17:26:33 UTC
reassigning to ncurses

Comment 4 Eido Inoue 2003-01-20 21:31:54 UTC
going to 5.3 in next release should fix this
