Description Ronny Klein 2003-02-21 10:51:42 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.6 (X11; Linux i586; U;) Gecko/20020830 Description of problem: In the default /etc/lynx.cfg one can find: #CHARACTER_SET:iso-8859-1, at least in the German version of Red Hat Linux. I don't know what the default character set of lynx is since this option isn't enabled. However, if I try to read German internet sites, I'm not able to read the umlauts -- German special characters. I thought RH 8 is entirely based on utf-8. That's why, I tried to set CHARACTER_SET:utf-8 in the /etc/lynx.cfg file and enabled this option. Yep, now I can read the German umlauts. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Lynx Programmversion 2.8.5dev.7 (06 Jan 2002) How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open lynx at the prompt. 2. Try to read a German internet site like www.pro-linux.de. Actual Results: All umlauts are "kauderwelsch" (not readable). Expected Results: The umlauts should be readable.

Only if it is also linked with libncursesw
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2003-02-25 16:04:31 UTC
No such library is shipped in Red Hat Linux.
Comment 3 Thomas E. Dickey 2003-02-25 17:15:42 UTC
Not in 8.0; perhaps in 8.1, judging by progress on other bug reports.
Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2003-02-25 17:28:24 UTC
Please cite bug number so I can mark the dependency down. Thanks.
Comment 5 Thomas E. Dickey 2003-02-26 01:03:49 UTC
77585, for example
Comment 6 Tim Waugh 2003-02-26 09:02:55 UTC
That bug is closed, and doesn't seem to mention any intention to ship another ncurses shared object.
Comment 7 Thomas E. Dickey 2003-02-26 11:30:14 UTC
so I see - if you're not going to fix this one either, then you should just mark it close.
