Hi Matthew,

Try this test in your shell (if using bash, sh , or ksh)

	LANG=C
	export LANG
	logwatch --print

Otherwise try this if csh or tcsh:

      setenv LANG C
      logwatch --print

Let us know if this works.
MrC

Subject: [Logwatch] Malformed UTF-8 character

Hi Folks, I was wondering if I could get some help solving this error I  am
getting The system is redhat 8.0 originally logwatch v2.x.x I updated today
to current stable version logwatch-6.0.1-4.noarch.rpm After adjusting the
logwatch.conf MailTo =  to a suitable value I run /usr/sbin/logwatch to test
it out and I am getting this:
Malformed UTF-8 character (overflow at 0xd558aa80, byte 0x5c, after start
byte 0xbf) in pattern match
(m//) at /etc/log.d/scripts/logfiles/samba/applydate line 41, <STDIN> line
1644.
Malformed UTF-8 character (overflow at 0xd558aa80, byte 0x5c, after start
byte 0xbf) in pattern match
(m//) at /etc/log.d/scripts/logfiles/samba/applydate line 41, <STDIN> line
1644.

After googling around a bit
I tried tweaking /etc/sysconfig/i18n
Changing from:
LANG="en_US.UTF-8"
SUPPORTED="en_US.UTF-8:en_US:en"
SYSFONT="latarcyrheb-sun16"
to:
LANG="en_US"
SUPPORTED="en_US:en"
SYSFONT="latarcyrheb-sun16"

And reran logwatch with same results. 

I googled some more and am stumped. I was wondering if anyone has some hints
maybe to point me in the right direction

I apologize if I left out something or if I missed something easy.
