8 bits are defenitely turned on, and I'll try to play with those
libraries soon.

I am using Mandrake 8.1:
linux-2.4.12, glibc-2.2.4, KDE 2.2.1, XFree 4.1.0, mc-4.5.55

two commands to try:
$ export LC_ALL=ru_RU.UTF-8
$ echo -en "\\033%G"

First one forces console to display dates in russian with UTF-8
encoding (BTW "LANG" won't do that), and second will force console
program to display UTF-8 output correctly (you'll need unicode font).
Then if you type 'ls -l' all the dates will be displayed correctly in
russian. Again if you do "more utf8.txt" where utf8.txt is text file
in UTF-8 it will be displayed correctly. With xterm you should use
option "-u8"
