    Default SuSE Linux 6.3 Boot Message

    How to display this file correctly? Disk is mounted with codepage=850,iocharset=iso8859-2 which works for alphanumeric, but fails for graphic characters.

    Code:
    erlangen:~ # file /mnt/MESSAGE 
    /mnt/MESSAGE: data
    erlangen:~ #
    Code:
    erlangen:~ # enca /mnt/MESSAGE 
    enca: Language `de' is unknown or not supported.
    Run `enca --list languages' to get list of supported languages.
    Run `enca -L none' to test only language independent, multibyte encodings.
    erlangen:~ # enca -L none /mnt/MESSAGE 
    Unrecognized encoding
    erlangen:~ #

    Finally found out the file contains numerous ASCII SI followed by 2 digits. Removed these:

    I would have gone for ASCII escape sequences, not for SI. But nice you detected it.

    Good old ASCII art and consorts.

    I never bothered in the old days, but now I needed to find out: Shift Out and Shift In characters


    Guessing does not work. With "bless" being botched on current Tumbleweed I finally installed hex. There is comprehensive information: https://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/Text-Terminal-HOWTO.html
