Description Akira TAGOH 2010-11-12 00:14:37 EST
Description of problem:
Putting CIJK locale to the kernel parameters doesn't make any sense since VT isn't capable to display any CIJK characters. as we have a sort of hacks to prevent enabling CIJK locale on VT in /etc/profile.d/lang.sh, new-kernel-pkg should have similar hack.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.put LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 as the kernel parameter in grub.conf
3.try login on VT
Actual results:
the broken localized strings on the password prompt appears.

Expected results:
should be readable.

Additional info:
This issue is raised on rawhide only since upstart doesn't have a look at LANG to spawn any processes but systemd does.

Any progress or updates for this issue? this issue makes the console unusable for CIJK users.
Comment 5 Akira TAGOH 2011-03-31 01:33:15 EDT
the issue seems fixed in systemd and we don't need anything in grubby now. so closing this.
