Strange Characters in Web console

Postby bec » Sat Jun 04, 2011 12:29 am

Hi,
I have some unusual characters appearing in my web console. I guess it has to do with charcter sets, but I really don't know where to start searching. I have attached a sample from one page, but it occurs on many pages.

Thanks
Brian

Those are actually escape sequence characters that control the cursor on the console. However when they are displayed on the web interface they are shown as characters rather than actions.

If you want to fix this problem on your current system the file you need to change is the /etc/colors script. This script control character colors and specific spaces such as a half screen tab that scripts use to move over to print the green "Done". To correct the problem do the following
edit /etc/colors
Code: Select all
# Find this
esac || unset CW CV CD CR CG CB CC CY CM CBN CRV
# Change it to this
esac || unset CW CV CD CR CG CB CC CY CM CBN CRV HT

cp /etc/colors /boot/etc/
sync
If you are afraid that you might make a mistake. The chances are high that you will never learn anything.
