Description Sinitsyn Valentine 2002-10-22 02:32:52 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020826

Description of problem:
setsysfont script is unable to use SYSFONTACM variable when using setfont (kbd's
tools), which substitutes consoletools in RH Linux 8.0

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Set SYSFONTACM="smth" in /etc/sysconfig/i18n

Actual Results:  Symbols are output to the console without regarding the
specified translation table

Expected Results:  Symbols are output to the console regarding the specified
translation table

Additional info:

setsysfont script seems to be designed for using with 'consoletools' package
(6.2<=RH Linux<=8.0) and not kbd (RH Linux 8.0). I've simply dubbed the code for
consolechars (from the top of the script) for setfont. This solves the problem
(patch attached). Then I've put 'echo -ne "\033(K" > /dev/console' commmand
after calling setfont in order to make startup messages to print correctly (see
bug #76470).
