Description Arenas Belon, Carlo Marcelo 2000-08-02 04:18:43 UTC
on Language Selection, if a language with a different charset/font than
english is selected on error (like rusian), when returning back to the
Language Selection form a wrong charset would be used (try selecting
spanish then)

Comment 1 Arenas Belon, Carlo Marcelo 2000-08-02 04:33:43 UTC
the same shows on graphical installs (try russian and then spanish)
seems like the "Language Selection" screen is not resetting the console
fonts/charset even on graphical installs (??)

I believe the graphical installer bug that corresponds to this is bug 13315.

This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Gold release

Comment 5 Matt Wilson 2001-01-19 05:30:49 UTC
The fonts change properly in both the loader and anaconda (stage2) for me.

Comment 6 Ben Levenson 2001-01-24 00:50:28 UTC
build: qa0123.0
Switched from Russian to French -- French was displayed with funny characters.

Comment 7 Matt Wilson 2001-01-24 01:15:22 UTC
problem is that the boot disk doesn't have a copy of the iso01 font.  Fixed in

Comment 8 Brock Organ 2001-02-20 21:58:05 UTC
qa0217.1 -- funny russian chars mixed in with french (after choosing russian ->
french) are still present ...

Comment 9 Matt Wilson 2001-02-20 22:03:00 UTC
please verify with a tree built after Feb 19.

Comment 10 Brock Organ 2001-02-23 23:36:28 UTC
