I slightly goofed with the first attachment.  The ??? may be another
manifestation of the problem.

Comment 4 Lon Hohberger 2002-12-05 21:05:20 UTC
Screen, as shipped with RHL8.0 does not support UTF-8 character encodings, which
is the default.

Put this in your .bashrc for now:

alias ntsysv 'LANG=`echo $LANG | sed -e s/\.UTF-8//g` /usr/sbin/ntsysv'


alias ntsysv 'LANG=C /usr/sbin/ntsysv'

Please see bug #78392; I will keep that one more up to date.
