Wrong console characters are after fresh etch install
- Target system: VMware Server
- Used the lastest daily netboot build of d-i (2007-02-25)
- Etch expert install
- Pretty default selection: en_US locale, guided part,
standard system (tasksel), LILO.

installation of some packages that couldn't be authenticated by issuing the
command "apt-install -y --force-yes libvolume-id0 udev busybox libklibc

â!â* â%âgroup â
â!â* â+ânetgroup â

(TERM=xterm) and the console (tty1) using VMware Server Console.
My locale settings (default etch, no modifications):
Did anybody notice this issue as well? Or is it just me?
Thanks in advance,
