The /usr/share/fonts/korean/TrueType/gulim.ttf file was missing from stage2.img.
 Corrected in CVS.
Comment 4 David Cantrell 2006-02-22 14:40:35 EST
Can't copy gulim.ttf to stage2.img.  It's too big.  dotum.ttf will need to have
this glyph added.
Comment 6 Leon Ho 2006-03-05 20:17:41 EST
The styles within both fonts are different, we probably need another solution. 

But first, John, can you type that character into a text file (using gedit) and
send attach it to here? We need its unicode codepoint first.
Comment 7 Leon Ho 2006-03-05 20:46:22 EST
U+D658 is the character (using 2bul IM, type "ghks"). 

I have also found that glyph in Dotum - So it is not an issue on missing glyph
in the font.

So confirm it maybe as sangu said, an embolden bug.

This looks fine with fontconfig-2.3.95-4.1.1, freetype-2.2.1-2.1 and
gedit-2.15.4-1. also works fine on firefox with news.naver.com where was used to
take a screenshot. please double-check this.

do you have .fonts.conf on your home directory, which probably has any
configuration to enable the bitmap font? apparently it looks like you are using
a bitmap font for displaying. and how about this on gedit with specifying the
font in the preference say?

I just tried to install rawhide from rawhide-20060731 tree on Korean. and took
a screenshot on the same page where the original reporter took it. it looks
Comment 14 Akira TAGOH 2006-08-01 05:49:13 EDT
So it works fine for me with the latest Korean fonts, and I couldn't even
reproduce on other applications. so closing this bug. please reopen this with
the certain information to reproduce this if someone still enconters this issue.
