    i386 or sparc64?

    In trying to reproduce it, Ubuntu already died on me (insert big rant
    here) and I have no idea how to fix that if I want to keep the
    stockness of the install:

    sd 2:0:0:0: [sdb] Write Protect is off
    sd 2:0:0:0: [sdb] Cache data unavailable
    sd 2:0:0:0: [sdb] Assuming drive cache: write through

    sd 2:0:0:0: [sdb] Attached SCSI disk
    sd 2:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg2 type 0

    Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

    opensuse also switches to utf8 (though noting that the kernel starts
    with utf8 by default since 2.6.24) and I have not noticed anything bad.

    Are you using a serial console?
