Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 128992
Simplified Chinese displays garbled characters in text console
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:47:05 EDT
Description of problem:
Test team has reported that in RHEL 3 U2 Simplifiied Chinese
(reproduced locally on Update 3 re0720), characters are not displayed
correctly in a text console. This was originally seen when kudzu ran
during system startup, but is also seen in other redhat config
text-mode programs (such as netconfig).
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL 3 Simplified Chinese
2. Run kudzu, netconfig, etc
Characters are not displayed correctly
Characters are displayed correctly
I picked the kudzu component because that's how the problem was first
detected and I'm not sure what component deals with character sets.
It's probably not the right place for the bug, so please reassign as
Chinese output is not supported on the text console.
