Although user can select trq (which is 99.9 % used by Turkish users),
the Turkish console fonts do not exist in distributions. I have the 
correct fonts which is added as third part by all users but we want as
default.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.run kbdconfig
2.select trq
3.although the keymap is defined due to turkish console fonts do not
exist, users can not see some the characters they press.
	

Actual Results:  although the keymap is defined, due to the fact hat 
turkish console fonts do not exist, users can not see some the characters 
they press.


Expected Results:  the correct characters should be seen instead of 
strange characters

My e-mail is: bdemircan@yahoo.com and I can send most popular 3
turkish console fonts to you.

console fonts are included in the console-tools package. Assigning there.
Comment 3 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-05-17 15:36:46 EDT
Does kbd-1.05-3 (from Rawhide) work for you? It includes lat5-{12,14,16} 
fonts, which IMO should be sufficient, but unfortunately I can't read Turkish.
Comment 4 Burak Demircan 2001-05-17 15:49:54 EDT
Yes you are right. Those fonts are now in these package with version 7.1
My bug was submitted when readhat 7.1 was not available.

The problem is going on in a different way in readhat 7.1.
Those fonts are perfect for turkish language but when a
user selects trq with kbdconfig it just selects the correct
keymap. The default font also should be selected as latin-5 (14)
I solved my problem by changing /etc/sysconfig/i18n file as turkish
settings.
Comment 5 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-05-17 16:36:36 EDT
Assigning to kbdconfig for that part of the problem.
Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2001-07-10 15:21:00 EDT
kbdconfig doesn't actually handle console font assignment. Assigning to anaconda.
Comment 7 Matt Wilson 2001-08-15 16:39:00 EDT
the next release is going to use lat5-sun16 which has full line drawing chars
for the console.
