Any difference in doing this regarding the terminal setup?
For sure, I've tried it again by choosing to run a shell under d-i
environment (BusyBox), then mount my /home partition and
cat some Thai text files. And it works.
To be more precise, some characters are really missing,
which can only be found by catting a test message file
(Thai version for the quick-brown message).
7 rare characters, 10 Thai digits, and 4 Thai punctuation
marks are missing in total.

I don't know how I can do this. Any way to escape from the
d-i UI other than switching to other virtual consoles, which
are not in directfb mode?
