vconsole.conf does not work correctly

I have a freshly installed arch with systemd. The problem is quite simple, i need the consolefont "lat2-16" to display my Czech characters correctly.
If I use

setfont lat2-16

everything works fine. But this obviously doesn't last after reboot. The solution should be putting the FONT in vconsole.conf, right?

my vconsole.conf :

KEYMAP=cz-qwertz
FONT=lat2-16
FONT_MAP=8858-2_to_uni

but the tty loads the "default" font, i.e. some other than I need. Do I have to put "setfont" to some script or what to make it work? What could possibly make this simple thing not work?

Re: vconsole.conf does not work correctly

there is a known bug that when your KMS driver is loaded, the font is reset.
As a workaround, add your video kernel module (nouveau, i915 or whatever) to MODULES in /etc/mkinitcpio.conf and rebuild your initramfs with.

mkinitcpio -p linux

Re: vconsole.conf does not work correctly

Try adding your graphics driver to mkinitcpio.conf and rebuilding your initramfs. See this thread.
