Description Péter, Soós 1999-06-15 15:59:28 UTC
If you take your /usr onto a separate partition (as
recommended by the RedHat Linux installation guide), the
/sbin/setsysfont couldn't load the default system font and
translation table from the unmounted /usr partition.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-06-15 21:08:59 UTC
The setsysfont call is at the beginning for fonts in
/etc/sysconfig/console (set up by the installer).
This call will be made smarter in the next release of
initscripts (> 4.21).

is also run from the keytable init script, so it should get
run later in the install.
