you have to run the "kon" program to see Japanese on your console.

Comment 2 John A. Hull 2001-03-28 00:15:21 UTC
Tried running kon at command prompt, but said it was an unknown command. Did a 
full custom install, plus all languages.

Comment 3 Matt Wilson 2001-03-28 05:29:24 UTC
verify kon2 package is installed.

Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2001-03-28 15:58:00 UTC
Putting in NEEDINFO state.

Comment 5 John A. Hull 2001-03-28 17:12:35 UTC
Installed kon2 packages, and kon works correctly now. Does Japanese need to be 
installed as the default language for the kon2 packages to be installed? They 
weren't installed with a Custom Everything install with English.

Comment 6 Matt Wilson 2001-03-28 17:19:40 UTC
if you selected the checkbox by Japanese or selected Everything on the
"languages to support" screen, you should get it.
