UTF-8 locales and the Linux console.
I recently switched my locale from no_NO.ISO-8859-1 to no_NO.UTF-8.
This seems to work great, at least under Gnome and X. However, the
Linux console does not know that I'm using UTF-8 and interprets all
the UTF-8 that various programs spew out as ISO-8859-1.
There is a command line program called unicode_start which will
un-confuse the kernel nicely. However, I need to invoke that manually
rather to frequently. Is there a officially blessed way to set the
kernel console in UTF-8 mode on startup? dpkg-reconfigure
console-tools and friends only seem to deal with my keyboard layout.
