zhcon does not support x86_64 by default, and the zhcon upstream seems inactive for a while.
The utf8 support of zhcon is via iconv, so if iconv fails to covert GB2312/GBK to UTF8,
missing words occur as consequence.

Now I am evaluating whether other CJK terminals can be used as substitute.

Comment 2 Ding-Yi Chen 2009-05-01 07:56:05 UTC
It seems that fbterm can be the good suceeding terminal when its input methods are more mature.
