Description of problem:
After changing the locale to a non utf8 one (because unicode seems broken to
me in many ways, already reported here in bugzilla) I also changed the console
font to lat9-16 (SYSFONT="lat9-16" in /etc/sysconfig/i18n). But now this font
is only applied to the first virtual console and not the other ones. In 7.3
this worked fine.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.in /etc/sysconfig/i18n change the default locate to, say, pt_PT.iso885915
2.change the default font to lat9-16
3.reboot just to make sure
Actual Results: After the system is back up, only the first virtual console
uses the correct font, you cah check this by trying to use an accented
character at the login prompt
Expected Results: The font should be applied to all vt's like it used to
happen in 7.3.
font settings not being inherited by all the vts is a known kernel bug (or is it
