Description Jeff Johnson 1998-12-15 18:52:49 UTC
console-tools           NEW PACKAGE - replaces kbd package.
                        is much nicer package, and the most
important thing
                        is that it allows 16bit ACM maps.
                        I was quite disappointed to see what
RH 5.2 shows
                        on console when I choose CZ
language, mc looks
                        disgustingly, etc. So, I've created
to new fonts,
                        lat0-sun16 and lat2-sun16, which are
compatible in
                        look and feel with the builtin
SUN8x16 kernel font,
                        these fonts contain as many
characters as possible
                        for latin0/latin1/vtline and
                        Provided is a iso15.acm and
iso01.acm to be used
                        with the former font (to get latin0
and latin1),
                        plus iso02.acm to get latin2,
additionally a hack
                        iso02+euro.acm, which replaces the
useless currency
                        symbol with euro sign. Included are
also updated
                        sun keymaps to handle euro, plus two
new keymaps,
                        sunt5-us-cz and sunt5-cz-us. With
this package,
                        you're really Euro-ready on the
