ls directory output on console garbled
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:44:09 EDT
Description of Problem:
On vt 2-6, output of ls appears completely garbled for the colored (directory,
link) etc items. This system was installed german default. LANG=C does not
fix this. This might be a font problem. unrelated to which user logs in too.
Funny enough, vt1 seems not affected , at least not right now.
The garbled text can be cut-n - pasted, to internally it seems to know what
its doing, just not display it correctly.
Sadly, I cannot easily show you how it looks. Can i somehow take a screenshot
of the console? it, as said, cannot be cut-n-pasted.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
This is an issue with unicode initialization on vt2->vt6. A fix/workaround is in
the current rawhide kbd package.
