Running Dietpi Version 7.6.2 on an x86_64 Architecture Toshiba.
Prior to the Upgrade over the weekend from v7.5.2 > v7.6.2 there has been no issue with encodings at all.
Now there is some oddities. Most normal words & numbers display the correct Alphanum (Upper & Lower). However any stylising that requires Special Character such as the Dietpi Login Screen or Menu Options in
dietpi-banner have issues.
Please see below:
Thank you, QA.
Hi, many thanks for your report.
Is this on a local console or terminal emulator or SSH? Can you check the following:
# The currently applied locales incl. charmaps
# All available/compiled locales incl. charmaps
Thank you for the reply, details as requested.
$ locale -a
I did note that when I used VNC Client/Server to access this machine, there was no encoding issues. I did wonder if I have messed up the default ~/.bashrc for this
N.B. The machine in question is using the DietPi x86_64 port.
So the locales are there and applied correctly. You ran those commands from the same terminal/console/emulator where the whiptail menus/banner looks strange? A more direct test:
~/.bashrc is not changed/set by DietPi but left the Debian default. What is changed is /etc/bash.bashrc to load /etc/bashrc.d/ contained .sh and .bash files. DietPi scripts internally force C.UTF-8, e.g. when the banner is called via:
What do you mean by “using the DietPi x86_64 port”? Is this on a locally attached screen or SSH client or desktop terminal emulator?
