Description Kjartan Maraas 2008-06-26 07:02:08 EDT
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.

What's your /etc/sysconfig/i18n look like?
Comment 2 Kjartan Maraas 2008-06-27 03:39:53 EDT
[kmaraas@localhost ~]$ cat /etc/sysconfig/i18n 
LANG="nb_NO.UTF-8"
SYSFONT="latarcyrheb-sun16"
[kmaraas@localhost ~]$ 
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2008-06-27 11:32:54 EDT
There was discussion that this may be a kernel issue - does this go away with an
older (or newer) kernel?
Comment 4 Kjartan Maraas 2008-06-27 18:31:11 EDT
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...
Comment 5 Dave Jones 2008-08-01 11:10:14 EDT
how about the -rc1 kernel ?
ISTR seeing something about this mentioned on lkml a few days ago.
Comment 6 Kjartan Maraas 2008-09-10 02:09:49 EDT
Still seeing this in current rawhide.
Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2008-10-20 15:40:32 EDT
Actaully, does the current rawhide/F9 update initscripts fix this? We had a bug in how we were setting the font.
Comment 8 Kjartan Maraas 2008-11-05 06:48:16 EST
Works now.
