Description Jens Petersen 2004-02-25 13:44:01 UTC
Description of problem:
Since our default console can't display wide chars currently,
XKeepsCrashing should be run under LANG=C for Asian languages
that use widechars.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. make gdm crash continually on ja installed machine.
Actual results:
XKeepsCrashing run in ja, but text is completely
unreadable on text VC.

Expected results:
Readable text.

Submitted upstream as:


Comment 2 Eido Inoue 2004-02-25 17:53:06 UTC
Actually, it shouldn't be run in locale C... but a universal UTF-8
locale. Not sure if the line drawing characters for drawing the window
will work with an ASCII-only locale such as C/POSIX. (unless
"unicode_stop" script is invoked beforehand)

Comment 3 Mark McLoughlin 2004-06-04 13:42:32 UTC
So, George has "fixed" this upstream by adding ConsoleCannotHandle
config key.

By default its switched off, and the set of languages are:


Jens, when we move to the new upstream version with the fix, are you
happy to just switch on ConsoleCannotHandle with this list of
languages.  Also, have you had a chance to confirm the upstream fix works?

Comment 4 Jens Petersen 2004-06-06 15:21:43 UTC
I was told through gnome bugzilla that a fix for this should now
be in gdm cvs.

Comment 5 Jens Petersen 2004-06-06 15:41:26 UTC
Doh, sorry missed comment 3.

Yes I think that will be fine. :)

Comment 6 Jens Petersen 2004-08-05 07:03:49 UTC
Also in reply to comment 3, no I haven't tested this yet.

But ok, I can re-open if there should still be problems. :)
