    I started now the machine I installed yesterday (12.1 fresh install no
    upgrade, was done from the KDE Live CD). And also there is no corruption
    visible for the graphic characters when starting yast in a virtual
    console (I have chosen first the first one [CTRL][ALT][F1] which has
    framebuffer).
    The second one [CTRL][ALT][F2] which has no framebuffer also shows yast
    correct. I also tried logging in as root vs. login as user and calling
    yast with sudo and su -c, in no case a corruption of the graphics
    characters is shown.
    I cannot find any combination which shows the corruption.

    Interesting.

    I booted up the same system today, use CTL-ALT-F1, logged in as root, started yast, and everything was fine.

    Something has changed between the initial try and now. Perhaps the system comes with yast incompletely configured, and it configures itself later, but not in time for that first attempt.

    Addendum: The situation leading to the funky screen yesterday - the "kexec" reboot during install had failed (an expected fail). I rebooted. Then the final stages of the installation completed. That's when the login screen appeared, and when I went to a virtual console to use yast and got a mess. So it was before any reboot on the fully installed system. It's possible that something done in those final installation stages don't get picked up until the next full reboot.

    The first attempt after install is different, yes.

    I don't know if it is still done via kexec, there were doubts.

    Thus we like to hear from the OP @manwhichmakesameal if it persists after a reboot.
