    35MC does not support UTF-8 out of the box. The problem manifests itself as misaligned characters on the screen and impossibility to view/edit files containing non-ASCII characters in UTF-8 based locales.

    79After unpacking the archive, apply the Debian patch:
    810{{{
    9 zcat ../mc_4.6.1-5.diff.gz | patch -Np1
     11zcat ../mc_4.6.1-6.diff.gz | patch -Np1
    1012}}}
