If users follows the guide and sets up the /etc/conf.d/consolefont with
this will result in messed up virtual terminal as Cyrillic characters will not be displayed.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set locale to LC_ALL=ru_RU.utf-8
2. Set CONSOLEFONT="ter-k14n" in /etc/conf.d/consolefont
All Cyrillic characters will not be displayed correctly in virtual terminal.
Cyrillic characters should be normal if user sets all things up according to official docs.
The ter-k14n font is a koi8-r font according to terminus-font docs. I suggest that the documentation should suggest setting CONSOLEFONT to cyr-sun16 which similar to default console font and is installed by default.
You are wrong, terminus fonts fully utf8 aware. Your problem is, probable, in console settings. Did you made nesessary changes for /etc/conf.d/keymaps?
Vladimir, answer question in comment #1. Thank you.
Azamat is right. My problem was that when consolefont service has been restarted all Cyrillic symbols already on screen has changed to wrong characters, but any new character are displayed correctly. So this bug should be considered as invalid.
