Description of problem:
systemd-vconsole-setup exits with "Cannot open font file True" on a fresh install.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install a fresh Fedora 17 system with "Minimal"
2. Boot the system. The message below appears in the system messages file.
Jun 21 20:35:07 demeter systemd-vconsole-setup: Cannot open font file True
Jun 21 20:35:07 demeter systemd-vconsole-setup: /bin/setfont failed with error code 66.
The man page seems to say that systemd-vconsole-setup is driven by an /etc/vconsole.conf, however, no such file is installed with Fedora. Perhaps systemd-vconsole-setup does not properly handle this case?
