Description Kjartan Maraas 2008-06-26 11:02:08 UTC
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 07:39:53 UTC
[kmaraas@localhost ~]$ cat /etc/sysconfig/i18n 
[kmaraas@localhost ~]$ 

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2008-06-27 15:32:54 UTC
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 22:31:11 UTC
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 15:10:14 UTC
how about the -rc1 kernel ?
ISTR seeing something about this mentioned on lkml a few days ago.

Comment 6 Kjartan Maraas 2008-09-10 06:09:49 UTC
Still seeing this in current rawhide.

Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2008-10-20 19:40:32 UTC
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 11:48:16 UTC
Works now.
