Font is broken during boot in norwegian locale
Last modified: 2008-11-05 06:48:16 EST
Description of problem:
When I boot a rawhide machine with norwegian bokmål locale I see a lot of the
strings are showing the wrong letters in certain places.
I think this mostly happens with norwegian "special" characters æøåÆØÅ, but I'm
not 100% certain.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
What's your /etc/sysconfig/i18n look like?
[kmaraas@localhost ~]$ cat /etc/sysconfig/i18n
There was discussion that this may be a kernel issue - does this go away with an
older (or newer) kernel?
The latest kernel from rawhide didn't make a difference at least. Older kernels
will help, but I can't remember exactly when this started...
how about the -rc1 kernel ?
ISTR seeing something about this mentioned on lkml a few days ago.
Still seeing this in current rawhide.
Actaully, does the current rawhide/F9 update initscripts fix this? We had a bug in how we were setting the font.
