Description David Balažic 2003-01-30 17:27:02 UTC
Description of problem: German umlaut characters ( a,o and u with two dots on them ) are not always displayed. I viewed the file /usr/share/doc/redhat-release-8.0.93/README- i386.de and cat, less and grep do not display them, while vi displays them. This is all in a root's bash on VT2 , TERM=linux. /etc/sysconfig/i18n : LANG="en_US.UTF-8" SUPPORTED="en_US.UTF-8:en_US:en:hu_HU.UTF-8:hu_HU:hu:sl_SI.UTF-8:sl_SI:sl" SYSFONT="latarcyrheb-sun16" Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): phoebe2 8.0.93 redhat-release-8.0.93-2 less-378-3 coreutils-4.5.3-11 vim-enhanced-6.1-23

This is fixed in the latest rawhides. Although en_US.UTF-8 is capable of displaying umlauts, I'm assuming that you want the en_US locale over the de_DE locale of course. Same encoding/charset, regardless.
Comment 2 David Balažic 2003-04-02 15:41:08 UTC
Same problem in rhl9. - cat : omits the umlaut chars in VT1, replaces them with "?" in gnomne-terminal and with " " in xterm - more : same as cat - less : displays umlaut, but eats the following char in all 3 term types - vi : OK in all cases versions : shrike rhl9 redhat-release-9-3 less-378-7 ( less ) coreutils-4.5.3-19 ( cat ) vim-enhanced-6.1-29 ( vi ) util-linux-2.11y-9 ( more )
Comment 3 David Balažic 2003-04-02 15:53:42 UTC
I discovered the problem. When I created a file with umlauts in it, it worked fine. It turns out theat README-i386.de file is not in UTF-8, but something else. od -t x1 reveals, that in my file "Ã¼" ( u with two dots ) is encoded as 0xc3 0xbc, while in the README-i386.de , it is just 0xfc. Closing as NOTABUG.
Comment 4 Eido Inoue 2003-04-02 19:02:35 UTC
Hmmm. As the default encoding for German in Shryke is UTF-8, the README should be changed. We may rename the file in future releases to "README.utf-8.de" to give a better hint as to what encoding the files are in.
