Bug#559364: [RFC]: Bug#559364: regression: console text is red
I dig into. The "tput op" does not do what is expected.
The our 8.x kernel series have added following options:
# UTF-8 console support
options SC_PIXEL_MODE # add support for the raster text mode
options TEKEN_UTF8 # UTF-8 output handling
options TEKEN_XTERM # xterm-style terminal emulation
But the TERM settings is not xterm, but still cons25.
It suffices to change cons25 into xterm in src/init.c
and debian/share/inittab.kfreebsd-gnu in source package sysvinit.
Or tweaking of "NORMAL=`$TPUT op`" in /lib/lsb/init-functions.
Or of course revert to previous TEKEN_CONS25 behaviour.
