When I use magit on a RHEL 7 box today, it gives me this output when checking magit-status:
Not sure what went wrong. Magit-version output is:
Magit 2.11.0, Git 2.14.1, Emacs 25.3.1, gnu/linux
The same Emacs setting works on Mac without any issue, haven't checked with a different Linux box yet.
Has anyone encountered the same problem before?
Found the problem, thanks to icarus. Sometime ago, I added
[color] ui = always
in my ~/.gitconfig. That's cause for all these control characters to show up. Removing it fixed it.
