: My problem is as follows:
: I run the top command and get a 3 at the end of every line, and a couple
: of blank lines in the screen, and a sequence of four or five numbers attached
: to the last line.
I get the same display when running splitvt, and I'm assuming it's in the
termcap/terminfo entry you've selected. Try setting the getty to linux or
console as the terminal, and Telix to ansi.
