Description Ales Kozumplik 2010-03-31 07:27:01 EDT
From the bug 576845:

"National characters has different ink color (window title, button, text inside

When I choose text install and czech language, the unicode characters are
brighter that "normal" ACSII chars (gray instead of black and similar with
red). This happened under VirtualBox. I'll try bare metal hardware.

How to reproduce: boot TC1 and add "text lang=cs" as kernel parameter."

This is not an issue in anaconda, bug 576845 comment 7 confirms that the issue is present with text interfaces on the installed system too.

Screenshot attached.

Some more info: 

I am opening a new bug instead of changing the component of 576845 because it has irrelevant screenshots attached (which are probably anaconda bugs).

I have personally never reproduced this. Both kparal and  Milan Kerslager (the original bug reporter) were only able to reproduce this on virtual machines.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '13'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 13's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 13 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:
