CentOS (RHEL) Funny Garbled Terminal Characters

February 5, 2007

On a new install of CentOS 4.4 I was having problems with the characters showing up funny when using ‘setup’ or viewing man pages.  A quick fix:

export LANG=’en_US’

Permanent Fix:

The problem is caused by a setting in this file:

/etc/sysconfig/i18n

edit the line that says:

LANG=”en_US.UTF8″ to read LANG=”en_US”
