mc can't use wide ncurses

Reported by: bas@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc: luka


This changeset here:

completely disables use of wide char in mc.

That's a wrong assumption that mc is not used with wide ncurses - i use it on Ben NanoNote with wide character display.

The problem that mc picks up ncursesw must be solved in another way, the above mentioned changeset is invalid.

Just a fast look at ./configure --help of mc yields --with-screen=LIB, where LIB is one of the following: ncurses, ncurserw, slang.

+PACKAGE_libncursesw:libncursesw +PACKAGE_libncursesw:libncurses will go to DEPENDS,
$(if $(CONFIG_PACKAGE_libncursesw),--with-screen=ncursesw,--with-screen=ncurses) goes to CONFIGURE_ARGS.

Not tested.

Ah, good hint. Somehow must have missed this.

The proper solution is probably doing something similar to "Enable IPv6 support in packages" but for wide char support, then link (and depend) accordingly (there are quite a lot of packages using ncurses(w), and they probably should use the same version, if possible.

Would someone please update mc Makefile to support unicode as suggested earlier or revert the commit that completely disables unicode, please?
