How do I choose NLS and codepage?


I want to try using iso_8859_15 and codepage 850 (I use iso_8859_1 and 437 now.) I build the modules for all 4 but none of them load. I loaded the modules for iso_8859_15 and 850 but they went unused. I don't see anything in my startup scripts or logs about NLS or codepage.

Did you mounted fat32, vfat filesystem with proper mount options. See man page of mount.

Code:
man mount

I have no fat32 or vfat file systems. This feature of mount only applies to conversion of 'long' file names, not what gets displayed on the console.

I was looking in the wrong place. I only needed to set the font, which one can do with setfont or have happen automatically with a setting in /etc/profile
