I'm new to Arch Linux, but I've studied some tutorials and read the Arch Linux installation, getting started and beginner's guides.

I have installed a basic Arch Linux on a VirtualBox machine. The machine seems to run just fine and I'm very happy with that, however while booting, part of the boot messages is just random garbled text.

enter image description here

Should I worry about this? Where do these messages come from? How do I fix it?


I don't know if you've fixed this yet, but my solution was to make sure that I had a "vconsole.conf" file in /etc fixed this problem. I was using the same setup and getting the same strange characters.
