The new version is supposed to be 5.8.7, not 5.8.0.
The 5.8.0 release has 
completely broken UTF-8 support (so broken, you
can't actually disable it 
from the script in some cases). Uninstall 5.8.0 and
upgrade to something 
newer (or find your 5.8.7 binary and symlink it over
/usr/bin/perl).

You can run the new interpreter manually:

$ perl msfconsole

BrokenUTF8() return me the same error of buggy
UTF-8
implementing.

This command should show /usr/bin/perl:
$ which perl

This command tell me the interpreter of
Perl(5.8.0)
is
in the proper position: /usr/bin.

Anymore hint? I am puzzled :-(

Thx & Regards

Dear guys,

When I tried to use metasploit2.4 with
UTF-8, I

met

the following problem:

$ LANG=en_US.UTF-8
$ ./msfcli
[*] this version of  Perl (5.008) contains a

buggy

utf-8 implementation. If you would like to
use

this

version with the Metasploit Framework, you
must

set

the LC_ALL environment variable to ??C??.
for

example:
$export LC_ALL=C; ./msfconsole

But the Perl on my machine(redhat 9.0) is

v5.8.0(

$perl ?Cv ), and after I upgraded it to Perl

v5.8.7,

the problem still remains.

Is the error message incorrect? or
Msf::UI::BrokenUTF8() incorrect?
What should I do if I want to use metasploit

framework

with UTF-8?

Can anyone help me?

BR

Minwell
