#56 Troubles with russian fonts in console


Good day,
I've just installed FedoraCore 11 in qemu with russian language. Converted it to colinux image, and when I start the emulation - I get "■■■■■■■■■■", in console, instead of russian words and symbols. How can I solv that problem, can you, please, help me?

    Current coLinux consoles have no language support (NLS).

    Please type this after login:
    export LANG=""
    Than your output should be English and visible.

    To use russian fonts, please login with SSH and Putty. Putty has a selection for language for font output.

    Hi, it's me again (Ivan).
    Thank you, but I already find out that Putty with SSH can show me correct language, but in fact I want to use colinux-console's because it's more comfortable for me.
    If you can add language support in colinux as mod or as plug-in it'll be great.
    Thank you.
