I recently did a number of package updates. When running mplayer, I now
get hundreds of:
iconv: conversion from 646 to UTF-8 unsupported
messages scrolling on the screen. When I try to run icewm, I get:
IceWM: iconv doesn't supply (sufficient) 646 to Unicode converters.
I see that PR 26053 and 23979 may be somewhat related, but these are old
For IceWM, I can work around the problem by manually setting LANG or
LC_ALL, but then the menus have no text (there is just white space where
the text should be).
I don't normally play with any of the locale-related environment
variables. Relevant (I hope) lines from my /etc/mk.conf:
PREFER_PKGSRC+=zlib fontconfig Xft2 render iconv
Has anyone else noticed this?
