Then I try Python in interactive mod and found the problem. On my system, there is not any output and error message in python3.0 console when I try to execute some statments. See following screen reaction:

Then I try to execute a script file hello.py. My script contains only one python statement: print('Hello World!') On my system, there is not any output and error message also when I run "python3.0 hello.py".

Then I witch to zh_TW.utf8 and try it again. The problem does not occur.

This problem was also occurs when I try the same steps on HP-UX 11.11, SUSE sles10, Ubuntu 9.04. Have you meet the same problem? Would you please kindly to tell me if I missed some steps when I compile Python from source or some env variables from shell or some others. The problem was strange and made me crazy. I am very appreciated if you can tell me how to resolve it.

You did everything correctly; I can reproduce the problem.
The source of the problem is that Python does not support the EUC-TW
encoding. Unless a codec for that encoding is contributed, there is no
chance to run Python 3 in that locale. Python 3.1 will abort execution
with the error message
