SuSE 10 console: No line drawing in fonts?
In character mode on command line SuSE 5.3 will with selected fonts, (e.g. 'setfont m.fnt') from /usr/share/kbd/consolefonts display line drawing chars in range decimal 176 to 223.
Using same font and c-code, SuSE 10 displays nothing on my new Acer laptop. Cannot find any font that does. SCO Unix does by default, and RedHat will by command 'consolechars -f alt-8x16.psf', for example, but I cannot try on same computer.
Don't think its hardware, since 'old' YaST displays perfect lines with the beautifully clean ter-...n font range on same computer. It is as if some setting suppresses display of extended characters by default but YaST gets around it.. Any ideas? This is for serious application!
