Upon booting, directly after loading initramfs, the Kernel output consists only of small white blocks / a maximally garbled font.
The system otherwise boots fine.
The font is also ok when I boot one of the
recovery options in the Grub boot menu.
Also, I noticed the Grub Menu itself has a very low resolution, and does not have the purple background color anymore.
How to debug this?
For inspecting another boot issue, i have uncommented "quiet splash" as Kernel Boot Parameter in Grub, thats why I get to see the output.
