The Wiki has moved to new hardware, and the old server died.

->>>>>>​ Done. You can find my comments below. I'​ll ​raise two concerns ​think should be covered ​on the mailing list.  +>>>>>>​ Done. You can find my comments below. ​Btw, what do you mean with "​sectioning"? ​ --- //​[[wiki:​user:​bocke|Bojan Popovic]] 2012/11/18 23:49// 
->>>>>> ​Btwwhat do you mean with "​sectioning"? ​ --- //​[[wiki:​user:​bocke|Bojan Popovic]] 2012/11/18 23:49//+>>>>>>>​ Well, with sectioning I meant to divide the page into parts, e.g. 1. Console 2. With X 3. Applications but this will be a decision of the site-admins. ​ --- //​[[wiki:​user:​markush|Markus Hutmacher]] 2012/11/19 03:56// 
 +>>>>>>>> ​I'm ok with that. I was thinking to suggest separating application localization tips, anyways. But we'​ll ​have to wait for admins. ​ --- //​[[wiki:​user:​bocke|Bojan Popovic]] 2012/11/19 09:24// 
 +>>>>>>>>​ The page is not that long. do not see a reason for splitting it up into sub-pages. The header sectioning ​should be enough to provide good navigation. \\  --- //​[[wiki:​user:​alienbob|Eric Hameleers]] 2012/11/20 07:31// 
 +>>>>>>>>>​ I was thinking ​on maybe adding some bits from Gentoo wiki on Unicode, specifically some tips on getting console apps to work. What would be the best way to do this? It shouldn'​t be too long and might fit into the page --- //​[[wiki:​user:​bocke|Bojan Popovic]] 2012/12/01 03:47// 
 +>>>>>>​>>>>​ Perhaps just add it to the [[slackware:​localization#​console|console chapter of the page]] ? \\  --- //​[[wiki:​user:​alienbob|Eric Hameleers]] 2012/12/02 08:16// 
 +>>>>>>>>>>>​ ThanxI'll go with that. Haven'​t yet prepared the text. I will have it ready in the next few days.  \\ --- //​[[wiki:​user:​bocke|Bojan Popovic]] 2012/12/03 16:36//

 So it's already noted. Well, I won't touch anything here until you comment on that.  --- //​[[wiki:​user:​bocke|Bojan Popovic]] 2012/11/18 23:08// So it's already noted. Well, I won't touch anything here until you comment on that.  --- //​[[wiki:​user:​bocke|Bojan Popovic]] 2012/11/18 23:08//
 +>> I meant that because the kernel uses UTF-8 as default, if you don't append vt.default_utf8 at all, you have UTF-8. But you're right, it becomes unclear, I will delete this line.  --- //​[[wiki:​user:​markush|Markus Hutmacher]] 2012/11/19 04:07//
 +>>>​ I don't think that's the case with Slack. I think the default is vt.default_utf8=0. Anyway, I know the most of the other distros do have vt.defaults=1 as the default. ​ --- //​[[wiki:​user:​bocke|Bojan Popovic]] 2012/11/19 09:32//
 +>>>>​ I've this information from, they should know, but anyways it's not relevant here.  --- //​[[wiki:​user:​markush|Markus Hutmacher]] 2012/11/19 09:57//
 +>>>>>​ I believe you. I did browse through docs before. I even looked in the kernel source. But there could also be a .config option to override that. There'​s no logic in liloconif adding vt.default_utf8=1 when a user enables utf-8, if there'​s no reason for it. Anyway you will find the similar advice on Dugan Chen's unicode article on his blog. So I would think this is somehow overriden. Or it's not enabled by default. ​ --- //​[[wiki:​user:​bocke|Bojan Popovic]] 2012/11/19 10:07//
 +I believe there is a small mistake / typo in this section where "​unicode-start"​ and "​unicode-stop"​ is documented. My Slackware installation (14.1) has "​unicode_start"​ (underscore rather than hyphen) and "​unicode_stop"​ as the installed commands. They work great - just as documented here.  --- //​[[wiki:​user:​bogzab|bogzab]] 2014/12/09 15:12//

 +>>>>​ Ok, now take one last look at the whole page. If you think it sounds ok, we can ask for comments on the mailing list. I would also ask for any contribution from anyone using Slackware in languages that require special input methods (we haven'​t covered those yet). On the other side, I think the European languages are covered pretty good. --- //​[[wiki:​user:​bocke|Bojan Popovic]] 2012/11/19 09:26//
 +>>>>>​ Hi Bojan, I have already after my recent changes, written a mail to the site-admins and asked if they plan to divide the page (referring to Erics posting above). I think that languages with special input methods should be focused in the translation. I mean, when anyone translates this page to chinese or persion etc, then he should add what's necessary. And this page should be (as is yet) focus localization in a more generic manner. ​ --- //​[[wiki:​user:​markush|Markus Hutmacher]] 2012/11/19 09:41//
 +>>>>>>​ Great. Thank you. Considering alternative input methods, I guess the admins will have the last word on that. I'm ok with both options, but personally think a localization article should be international enough. That, of course doesn'​t mean including individual methods or tips, but rather the general input methods like [[http://​​wiki/​Smart_Common_Input_Method|SCIM]]. --- //​[[wiki:​user:​bocke|Bojan Popovic]] 2012/11/19 10:14//
 +>>>>>>>​ Ah, I don't know SCIM ;) it should at least be mentioned with a link.  --- //​[[wiki:​user:​markush|Markus Hutmacher]] 2012/11/19 10:41//
 +>>>>>>>>​ Neither do I, but I'll try to test it and write something about it for sake of completeness. ​ --- //​[[wiki:​user:​bocke|Bojan Popovic]] 2012/12/01 03:46//
