hi, i get a set of transparent questionmarks in black background (per character) around the following lines in the upper portion of my screen (1400x1050x32) using fbsplash when the boot process finishes and login prompt appears.

???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
INIT: version 2.84 booting??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
* Mounting proc at /proc...???????????????????????
etc...

i also get following error, which i have ignored by using SPLASH_VERBOSE_ON_ERRORS="no" in /etc/conf.d/splash

putfont: PIO_FONT: Invalid argument

do the questionmarks depend on some splash-font?

SPLASH_FONT="luxisri.ttf"

where can i see a list of available splash-fonts?

i am using the consolefont "lat9w-16"

please help.

EDIT:

i commented the CONSOLEFONT="lat9w-16" ind the /etc/rc.conf and uncomented the CONSOLETRANSLATION="8859-15_to_uni" that solves the questionmark problem as well as the PIO_FONT problem, but now i cannot use the EURO sign. how can i get this working??
