Over the past few years there have been some Linux systems that will output strange characters when running various commands. Here's an example of my output from the
sensors command on one of those machines:
acpitz-virtual-0 Adapter: Virtual device temp1: +45.5Â°C (crit = +126.0Â°C) coretemp-isa-0000 Adapter: ISA adapter Core 0: +44.0Â°C (high = +100.0Â°C, crit = +100.0Â°C) Core 1: +45.0Â°C (high = +100.0Â°C, crit = +100.0Â°C) nouveau-pci-0100 Adapter: PCI adapter temp1: -62.0Â°C (high = +95.0Â°C, crit = +99.0Â°C)
Â character all over the place. Why does this happen in some environments and not others? What can I do to correct this?
