Description Dimitris 2006-06-27 18:23:17 EDT
Description of problem:

After we install FC6-test1, the Greek console font isn't loaded. Instead, we see
an error message "Error: Cannot load font iso07-16.psfu".

Apparently, someone missssspelled the font name defined under
/etc/sysconfig/i18n. The correct settings are:


As you can see, the correct font is "iso07u-16" (FC6-test1 is missing the 'u').

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

Fedora Core 6 Test 1

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start the FC6-test1 installation
2. During the language selection, select Greek
3. Complete the installation procedure, reboot and login
4. Confirm that there is no Greek support in the console

Actual results:

Greek font isn't loaded, no greek characters can be displayed.

Expected results:

Correctly spelled font name that loads fine and displays Greek.
