Re: ANSI graphics not displaying properly in 8.0



Well, where are you seeing the problem?  Ncurses, for instance, works
properly in a local gnome-terminal, xterm, and the system consoles.

If you're seeing the problem on a remote terminal emulator, then you
need to tell your terminal emulator that the RHL system is using a UTF-8
character set.  When you tell your term the correct character set,
ncurses (among other things) will display properly.

If you're having a problem with some hokey application spitting out 8
bit characters on the system console, hoping that they'll form some
fruity graphics, then maybe those applications need to be updated to
UTF-8.

In either of those cases, what you're seeing isn't a bug.  It's a change
that will be the case for future releases.

The old, bad, behavior can be had by setting LANG to en_US in
/etc/sysconfig/i18n.
