Default Bold text on ttyX, Linux Mint 12 Lisa

In any tty (Ctrl Alt F_KEY) on Linux Mint 12, the text is always in bold by default (and doesn't seem to change) which makes attron(A_BOLD) and attroff(A_BOLD) of Ncurses useless. Is there any way to get the text on consoles in plain text (remove the bold formatting)? Thanks.

You do realize that linuxmint 12 has not been supported for over a year now?
