Description Alan Cox 2003-02-09 20:36:35 UTC
Start the install. flip to another console to see why its going wrong, flip back
to the first console after its done at lot of the start up and you get mangled
dialog boxes with the wrong font stuff. I think anaconda is loading the font
into tty0 (current) not tty1 ?

Comment 1 Matt Wilson 2003-02-12 03:25:57 UTC
you switched really early, right?  Probably the font got loaded on VT1 while you
were on VT3.  We're loading to the right fd (stdout)
