Kanji On Console – Display kanji characters on your own console

KON2 is a program for displaying Kanji japanese characters on the console of Linux/FreeBSD. KON2 hooks the output of console and redirects to pseudo tty, drawing on the VGA display.

If KON2 would be going to something wrong, check shared-memories being loading or not. If not, add “options SYSVSHM” to /usr/src/sys/i386/conf/GENERIC, and reconfigure the kernel.

Be aware that using KON2 with X is not allowed You should shutdown X first when you use KON2, and vice versa.

In order to use 30 lines default is 25, modify the “Normal” entry of kon.cfg as follows ——- VGANormal VGA 640 680 768 800 480 491 493 525 1 79 29 ——-
