[ja] missing bterm font warning at boot time
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:04 EST
Description of problem:
I'm not sure what the exact cause of this problem with for a while now
with recent trees, a warning is appearing on in the startup messages
on the console about not finding the bterm font.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot rawhide install (in Japanese system locale?).
2. Look at boot messages on virtual console.
2. missing bterm font error message seen.
2. No error.
The actual line on the console is something like
"Setting default font (bterm): Can't find font bterm."
Actually "Can't find font file bterm".
This happens with even bogl-bterm installed fwiw.
I noticed that SYSFONT set in /etc/sysconfig/i18n to bterm:
not quite sure why though... so re-assigning to anaconda
[This is from a rawhide install last week, updated with yum.]
Chris, can you take a look at this tomorrow?
SYSFONT is set to bterm because of the following line in anaconda's lang-table file:
Japanese ja bterm ja_JP.UTF-8 jp106 Asia/Tokyo
Is bterm an incorrect setting? Should SYSFONT not be getting specified?
We need bterm for use in the installer, but it's not valid for the general case.
I think we used to do some munging to avoid bterm getting written out.
Fixed in CVS.
