Description russell bell 2008-01-30 14:13:03 UTC
Latest working kernel version:
Earliest failing kernel version:  2.6.24
Distribution: slackware 10.2
Hardware Environment:  IBM Thinkpad A30p
Software Environment:  any
Problem Description:  No high-bit-set characters are displayed in any font.
The other characters change when I change font, and the unknown character
symbol changes when I change font, but all high-bit-set characters come out
as the unknown character symbol.  I wrote a script and tried every font
I have.  It has always worked in and before

Steps to reproduce:  display high-bit-set characters with 'cat' or 'less'
or 'emacs' ...
