Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 9519
cyrillic font may not be loaded with this version
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:54 EDT
With this version of console-tools, default cyrillic font may not be
loaded. following command:
consolechars -f Cyr_a816 --acm koi2alt
drop console to strange non-returnable state. Format of koi2alt.trans is
obsolete, so I tried latest version of fonts and maps from
"consolechars -f UniCyr --acm koi8-r" works great in RedHat-6.1, but it
does not work in 6.2beta.
Created attachment 121 [details]
set of cyrillic fonts and maps for console-tools
*** Bug 9396 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
It looks to me that console-tools 0.3.3 is broken - no one of existing cyrillic
fonts work with it, except for "consolechars -f koi8u_8x16 -u koi8u", that's
difficult to use because it require changes in /etc/profile.d/lang.sh.
surrently lang.sh does not handle "echo \033(K", if UNIMAP is set.
Is it possible to fall back to RH6.1 version?
19990829-7 should fix this.
If it doesn't work for you, please reopen this bug.
