2. Select Japanese as the default language
3. Restart the machine

you have to run the "kon" program to see Japanese on your console.
Comment 2 John A. Hull 2001-03-27 19:15:21 EST
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 00:29:24 EST
verify kon2 package is installed.
Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2001-03-28 10:58:00 EST
Putting in NEEDINFO state.
Comment 5 John A. Hull 2001-03-28 12:12:35 EST
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 12:19:40 EST
if you selected the checkbox by Japanese or selected Everything on the
"languages to support" screen, you should get it.
