In 19990829-7 version, koi2alt map is gzipped. but it has not to be
gzipped, because if you type "consolechars -f Cyr_a8x16 -m koi2alt", you'll
Assuming 8-bit font-charset-map - MUST be a regular file
It mean that maps like koi2alt, koi8u2ruscii etc work only in plain text
format, not gzip. Look at bug #4022.
ALL 8-bit maps including VITAL koi2alt are broken in this package by .spec
author! Don't strip .trans suffix and don't gzip 8-bit maps! Please remove
following lines from spec file:
for i in $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/usr/lib/kbd/consoletrans/*.trans; do
NEWNAME=`echo $i |sed -e s/\\\.trans//`
if [ -e $NEWNAME ]; then
rm -f $i
mv -f $i $NEWNAME
if [ ! -e $NEWNAME.gz ]; then
gzip -9f $NEWNAME
look at good spec file I've attached to bug 9908.
