I`m using lfs-6.5 stable and Xorg-7.4 from svn-20090928.
The answer to the first question is YES
I tried number "2" and still have the same problems
Number "3" is working, i have back my language but i`m not sure if this
solve the problem! I`m telling this because forced to start a new session
everything in the console will be lost!
Multiple console "case" has the same problem.These consoles which didn`t
use for start X,behave like the others with the problem.
Finally i tried sigma-general and also sigma-cyrillic
with the way INSTALL says for the lfs, and
after this with (setfont ./sigma-general-8x16.psfu.gz and
showconsolefont) and they behave very nice and with the proper way but
until i come back
I mean that i have the same problem also with sigma.
