terminal of new installed archlinux32 looks corrupted

hello,

i just installed archlinux on an old i686 Pentium III-S based National Instruments Controller.
I followed step by step the installation guide, but after booting it the first time it looks like this:

ip link

i typed 'ip link'...

I thought i did something wrong during the installation process, so i installed it again, but the result is the same.
I can use the terminal just like normal, so login, using switch between terminals etc. , but i can barely read something.
It's not a hardware related problem, GRUB and BIOS look all good.

Maybe someone has an idea what the problem could be ^^

Looks familiar: I would search in the direction of console fonts: https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Linux_console,
UTF-8 or 8-bit charset for the locale. nomodeset or so boot parameter and see if things change..

Re: terminal of new installed archlinux32 looks corrupted

i changed fonts, keymaps etc.. but it didnt help at all sad

but when i changed grub settings from "set gfxpayload=keep" to "set gfxpayload=text"

it changes the whole scheme to something like "bios font" but at least i can read it now
