hello guys from border :) need your advice.

I have gentoo in english (utf8) with polish keyboard (utf8) and I need cyrillic support. I have couple files coded in cyrillic non utf-8 and it looks ugly (for example in krusader or rox)
Code:
█¥¬ ¥ ┼ã«ì

How to set gentoo to support cyrillic? In kernel (Native Language Support) I have:
Code:
(utf8) Default NLS Option
<*>   Codepage 855 (Cyrillic)
<*>   Codepage 866 (Cyrillic/Russian)
<*>   NLS ISO 8859-5  (Cyrillic)
<*>   NLS KOI8-R (Russian)

If you have utf-8, then you already have cyrillic support. Regarding files --- you have to convert them from either KOI8-R or WINDOWS-1251 to UTF-8 using iconv (see man page for more details). Try smth like: iconv -f koi8-r -t utf-8 "filename" > filename.utf8.

Come back, if it doesn't helps.

ok, now it's ok :)
one thing left - utf support in beep-media-player (tag in utf).

my play list example:
Code:
5'nizza - ??????????? ???? (invalid UTF-8)

Check the "Do not use ID3V2 tags" in the MPEG Output Plugin Preferences.

this is some kind of solutions, but I noticed one more option in MPEG audio plugin: Convert non-UTF8 ID3 tags to UTF8, and there it should be specified ID3 encoding. I don't know what I should put there. any ideas?

Try "windows-1251" or "koi8-r".

Yes, only 1 encoding is possible to set. You may try to recode you mp3 tags to unicode.
