Corrupted Console Text

Hello,

I have just installed a mostly-vanilla Arch Linux 32 system on my old Dell Mini 9. The installation media boots fine, but after rebooting into the new system, I get a console like below. The screen is fine through "Loading initial ramdisk..." and "starting version 236". I am then asked for the password to unlock the LUKS root disk. I see the fsck information for the partition and then a couple more lines appear normally, but almost immediately the screen is filled with the "torn" text.

I am able to blindly log in and stored "dmesg > dmesg.log" which I then looked through from the installation media. There are a few warnings that appear here which are absent from the installation media's dmesg log:

Re: Corrupted Console Text

This solved the problem! I commented out the following line

/etc/default/grub wrote:
#GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=keep

and then recreated the GRUB config.

Thanks!
