Squares instead of Cyrillic (Russian letters) in server console

Sometimes instead of Cyrillic, you can see “squares” in the Linux console.

It doesn’t allow to read the system messages if the Cyrillic locale is set (Russian locale).

This problem is typical for Ubuntu, the solution is here.

The problem can be solved by running this command:

sudo -i echo 'FRAMEBUFFER=Y' » /etc/initramfs-tools/initramfs.conf exit sudo update-initramfs -u sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup
