Description Smela Csaba 2005-06-10 07:33:00 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; hu-HU; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050223 Firefox/1.0.1

Description of problem:
Switching to a non-unicode locale (hu_HU) by modifying i18n as LANG="hu_HU" SYSFONT="lat2-16" typing any hungarian accent character "garbage" characters are displayed . Looks like unicode encoded letters trying to be displayed on a non-unicode terminal. Running unicode_start those characters are displayed correctly but Midnight Commander is awfull.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change settings in i18n
2. Open a terminal and type some hungarian accent letters.

Actual Results:  Garbage chars are displayed on terminal.

Expected Results:  Correct ones should be seen.

Additional info:

Ssh terminals thru putty work great.

Switching to non-unicode hungarian works fine in both FC3 and RHEL4.

What terminal program are you using, which is displaying garbage characters?
Comment 2 Smela Csaba 2005-06-10 09:09:36 EDT
Standard tty. VGA monitor attached to the video card of my computer. You just
boot  and login on root's or any other's account. Tried to switch terminal by
ALT+F2 - F6. Same happens. 

Accessing over ssh from remote linux is OK. 
Comment 3 Smela Csaba 2005-06-10 09:24:23 EDT
Listing directory contents by ls -l all hungarian chars are correct. Only input
characters typed from console's keyboard look garbage. 
Comment 4 Dave Jones 2005-06-27 19:14:55 EDT
Mass update of -test bugs to update version to fc4.
(Please retest on final release, and report results if you have not already done

Comment 5 Smela Csaba 2005-06-28 04:43:17 EDT
Netinstalled fc4 final.
Yum updated.
Repeated steps mentioned above.

Nothing has changed. Problem still exists.
