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:

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?
