8.0, I have found that by following these two simple things the quality of
the output of the console can be incresed.
1. Setting LANG="en_US" in /etc/sysconfig/i18n (Defaults to en_US.UTF-8).
Even after resetting as above, things didn't work for me. But one unusual
step *seems* to have solved the problem (at least at my end). What I did
was add more virtual terminals on the console (/etc/inittab) and the issue
is resolved. I no longer get garbled screen. Red Hat comes with default 6
VTs, I increased it to 10. I don't know if this is the solution of just a
case of coincidence.
