I have a problem with the UTF-8 support on the console. A simple test to
show you the problem: Install kbd package and with commands
# kbd_mode -u -C /dev/tty1; kbd_mode -u -C /dev/tty2 ...
set keyboard mode to Unicode. Now create a file with a German character
on its name. This produces the following result:
# touch Müller.txt
Another simple test with midnight commander:
# mcedit /lib/kbd/consoletrans/utflist
- Press F7 for search function
- Type the German character 'ä'
- The input field show '??'!
- After pressing enter key, mcedit finds the correct entry
'00e4 ä LATIN SMALL LETTER A WITH DIAERESIS'
(tested with version alpinelinux 2.4.10 and 2.5.4)
I miss the locale files for correct usage of UTF-8 characters on the
limited console character set.
