Description Hamlet Mun 2006-07-06 08:55:01 UTC
midnight commander distributed with Fedora and Suse, seems to have full support for UTF8
even for the viewer and editor

Just doing a quick glance at the mc ebuild, maybe the unicode useflag enables UTF8 support? 
[snippet from ebuild]
        if use slang && use unicode; then
                epatch ${DISTDIR}/${P}-utf8.patch.bz2

I don't see what you mean here, the patches are already used.
Comment 3 Hamlet Mun 2006-07-06 09:03:52 UTC
With slang and unicode flags enabled, the menu shows correct characters for ko_KR.UTF8.
But I can't write Korean file names.
First, I have to use Ctrl + O to close the windows.
Same problem with editing files (F4). I can't write Korean or Chinese.
Comment 4 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-07-06 09:12:44 UTC
Won't be much better until slang-2 w/ proper unicode support gets into portage (Bug 95247).
