Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 116806
gdm XKeepsCrashing should be run in English for CJK
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:37 EST
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.
XKeepsCrashing run in ja, but text is completely
unreadable on text VC.
Submitted upstream as:
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)
So, George has "fixed" this upstream by adding ConsoleCannotHandle
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?
I was told through gnome bugzilla that a fix for this should now
be in gdm cvs.
Doh, sorry missed comment 3.
Yes I think that will be fine. :)
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. :)
