Red Hat 8 Dash Character


Looks like there is a problem with the dash (-) character under Red Hat 8. In Konsole, for example, a dash does not display properly in man pages. It works fine on Gnome Terminal, but searching for the character in a man page (/ command) returns no match. It appears that the dash character is "not really a dash."

Thank you for any thoughts.

Is it possible to give us an example screenshot or something of what your talking about? Cause I've never seen a problem with the hyphen on any distro I've used.

Redhat has moved into fully supporting unicode UTF-8 locales. Some of the products provded by Redhat have yet to fully comply with the unicode model. They will in time.

If you need to, you can reset your LANG environment variable to something else, like 'C' for example.

LANG=C
export LANG

If you make the change, as you upgrade, you will want to change it back.

Cheers--
