[i18n] LC works again (well, kind of)


Finally I managed to get dbootstrap to run in a bterm and
properly display all fonts.

However the right-hand-side edges of the boxes are not
displayed. Also some messages seem to have linebreaks in wrong
places (e.g. jp translation) - this might be either broken
translations or dbootstrap's/newt's fault. It would be nice if
someone with knowledge of dbootstrap/newt/whatever internals
could look into it (and hopefully invent a fix! :-).

An i386 2.88MB image I produced is available at

For those, who would like to make their own image, here's the
recipe (I know that some of the steps are unacceptable for
regular use. They will be solved (hopefully) if we know that LC
really works OK):

1. cvs update -dPR
2. patch < LC.diff (attached to this post)
3. remove slang from your archive directory
4. put slang1_1.4.4-2_$arch.deb to your archive directory
5. put libnewt-utf8-0_0.50.17-6_$arch.deb to your archive directory
6. set offline_mode to true (in config)
7. install libnewt-utf8-0, libnewt-utf8-pic, libnewt-dev
8. remove libnewt-pic
9. downgrade to slang{,-dev,-pic}_1.4.4-2
10. make utils resc2880compact.bin

good luck!
