console font (latarcyrheb-sun16) doesn't stay set
I am using Fedora Core 3 and the latest NVIDIA driver. I notice that when FC3 sets the default console font to "latarcyrheb-sun16", this setting doesn't survive any switch to X11. I can re-run /sbin/setsysfont to restore this setting, but I was wondering if there was a way to tell the NVIDIA driver "hands off my console fonts". The font that is apparently the default text-mode font for this video card (GeForce FX 5200 Plus) doesn't have the proper characters for UTF-8.

I confirm. This is very annoying if someone need to use national character sets.

I'm not seeing this behavior in FC3. Can you please post a bug report?

I do so.

This can happen on any distro when you use standard vga console (no framebuffer which is shipped with most default kernels)

Hello. I am seeing this behaviour with Ubuntu Edgy. After installing the nvidia driver, if I go to the console with Ctrl-Alt-F1, non-English characters are not properly displayed. I can reset the charmap by reruning the proper init script at the console but, If I return to graphics mode with Alt-F7 and then back again to console with Ctrl-Alt-F1, the incorrect character setting has appeared by itself again.

Since the previous posts to this thread were almost one and half years ago, I deduce that nobody has found a solution and if it is a bug, it has not been solved.
