Thread: local console yast linedrawing characters garbage after first reboot

  1. #1

    Default local console yast linedrawing characters garbage after first reboot

    I installed a fresh Tumbleweed from the latest ISO download as a "Minimal server selection (text mode)".
    I'm still on the console with root (I'll switch to non-root after sshd is configured).

    On the console with root:

    1. After the install, yast displayed the line-drawing characters fine.
    2. After reboot, it doesn't.

    How can I fix this?

    In-between install and reboot, I installed a bunch of patterns:

    - Enhanced Base System
    - Console Tools
    - File Server
    - Network Administration
    - Mail and News Server
    - Web and LAMP Server
    - Internet Gateway
    - DHCP and DNS Server

    Finally I did this:

    - zypper dup
    - reboot

    Now yast line drawing characters are garbage

    During the installation, I choose English as language and timezone Europe/Netherlands

    This is how yast looks now (boy I'm glad with http://wiert.me/2013/08/23/esxi-quic...n-png-format):



    This is how it looked before reboot:

    This seems to be a long-standing bug: http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-b.../msg00103.html

    Workaround from the bug-report:

    "To get a working YaST for now you can call '/bin/unicode_start' on command line
    before starting 'yast' or call YaST without start script
    ('/usr/lib/YaST2/bin/y2base menu ncurses')."
