I can't use the £ (pound) character under FreeBSD 4.8-RELEASE, i've
tried with console and remotely logging in.
I have my keymap set to the uk.cp850, here are some of my rc.conf options
allscreens_flags="" # Set this vidcontrol mode for all virtual screens
allscreens_kbdflags="" # Set this kbdcontrol mode for all virtual screens
Somebody suggested that this could be due to a font issue? Any idea how to resolve it?
Would I need to load the cp850 font too? If so why can't I load this, I receive this
error and would this actually fix the problem?
When booting up, it says ....
font8x8vidcontrol: YES: can't load font file: No such file or directory
$ sudo loadfont -f /usr/share/syscons/fonts/cp850-8x8.fnt -i
loadfont: ioctl VGAGETSCREEN failed: Inappropriate ioctl for device
