For this version, we are still using the same fonts than in Debian 1.3 :


de-latin1-nodeadkeys.map.gz dvorak.map.gz es.map.gz
fi-latin1.map.gz fr-latin1.map.gz it.map.gz no.map.gz
pl.map.gz ru.map.gz se-latin1.map.gz uk.map.gz us.map.gz

(Total: 30KB)


amiga-de.map.gz amiga-us.map.gz atari-de.map.gz atari-se.map.gz
atari-uk-falcon.map.gz atari-us.map.gz

(Total: 23KB)

Yes, we can save a few KBs, but we add another step to the instructions
to build the boot disk. I don't know if our users will find that
"friendly" enough in this case (message files tend to be bigger),
but probably we will end up implementing a script to build the boot disk
from a set of "building blocks" to be found in the CDs and FTP sites.

As we are talking about kbd, may you make kbdconfig execute "zcat"
instead of "gzip -c -d"? We have a "zcat" utility in the boot floppies,
but no "gzip", and "ln -si zcat gzip" will confuse many users.
