mkinitcpio -P produces the following warning (on a fresh 21.1.3 install)…
-> Running build hook: [consolefont] ==> WARNING: consolefont: no font found in configuration
Digging through a variety of forums & the Arch Wiki I found the “issue” to be a blank /etc/vconsole.conf file, like so:
KEYMAP=us FONT= FONT_MAP=
Based on the recommendations in the Arch Wiki I changed that file to look like this
KEYMAP=us FONT=lat1-16 FONT_MAP=8859-2
Making that change produced the following error from systemd
setfont: KDFONTOP: Function not implemented
There’s a github issue regarding this
https://github.com/systemd/systemd/issues/16406 but the thing is, I really don’t care about customising the console font. Just gimme a reasonable default & I’ll take it.
So I’m thinking I’ll just remove the
consolefont build hook, and my question is - is it safe to do that? The Manjaro Devs put that build hook there as default & I don’t know if it’s only for tinkerers or whether it’s important in other ways.
P.S. Yes, I know I can simply ignore it but in 12 years of school I only ever received 1 warning on my report card.
