Description

libssh depends on UTF-8 iconv data which not available in illumos :

  1. locale
    LANG=
    LC_CTYPE="C"
    LC_NUMERIC="C"
    LC_TIME="C"
    LC_COLLATE="C"
    LC_MONETARY="C"
    LC_MESSAGES="C"
    LC_ALL=
  2. ssh localhost
    invalid UTF-8 sequence: Cannot convert UTF-8 strings to the local codeset
    invalid UTF-8 sequence: Cannot convert UTF-8 strings to the local codeset
    invalid UTF-8 sequence: Cannot convert UTF-8 strings to the local codeset
    invalid UTF-8 sequence: Cannot convert UTF-8 strings to the local codeset
    Password:

This has implications for Illumos-based distributions.

I think SSH depends on these packages:

SUNWiconv-unicode
SUNWiconv-extra
SUNWuiu8

At least installing these packages on my systems solves that kind of problems.

The iconv data currently comes from the g11n repository. We do need to move more of this into illumos.

Note that the particular problem described here does not occur with illumos installed via onu from OpenSolaris b134....

The lack of these iconv components also causes issues with SMB. Domain join in particular just doesn't work at all without them.

Is this still an issue after the updated locale code?
