Description of problem:
at startup (or when running manually) keytable that runs setsysfont
i have an error like:
]# setsysfont
putfont: PIO_FONT: Invalid argument

when tracing it, i suppose this is due because there's no

(i suppose this, because of the strace, the error happens in the child just
after trying to open both files); maybe this is a setsysfont error, not glibc? ;)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run setsysfont  and error appears

Actual Results:  error

Expected Results:  no error ;)

en libc.mo is really not needed, the messages are in english already ;)
The problem is elsewhere:
[pid 19692] ioctl(7, 0x4b61, 0x8056d00) = -1 EINVAL (Invalid argument)
which means it is either setfont bug, or kernel bug when handling PIO_PUTFONT
ioctl, or you're running this on terminal which doesn't support changing of

ok forget about this

on the following reboot it went allright *g*

my system is beginning to act weirdly (i had gcc segfaulting, and X crashing today)

i suppose some of my hardware is failing can't find what atm
