Hello,
I have several postgres installations
one under windowsXP, cygwin, everything works fine, also the umlaute (ae, oe,  etc. cannot display them correct here)
no I installed it together with redhat 8.0 (did not config anything)
and there the umlaute do not work, where do I have to config, that the umlaute will work?
is this a redhat (I only have installed the english language) or a psotgres issue?
thanks a lot
and if its a redhat issue, does anyone know how to add a language to the system after installation?

wbk,
compile it with options
just ./configure --help and it shows you
but its --enable-nls that you want
btw look into unicode
