Hi, i have problem with menuconfig. It renders oddly and i cant control it with arrow keys. When i'm pressing arrow keys, it just prints only ^[[A or ^[[B Instead of moving in the menu (take a look at screenshot below). I have urxvt terminal but same thing happens in virtual terminal (ttyX). Where is problem? Thanks.

You may want to check the CHARSET of your console, what's your OS?

We don't use ARCHlinux, ARCHlinux wiki is here https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Main_Page. You can consult this and find out your console charset. Or you may try to remote login to your computer with software like putty, change the charset translation to have a try.
