Screen garbled on dialin line (Help!)

Screen garbled on dialin line (Help!)

Post by Robert P. Biuk-Agh » Fri, 09 Feb 1996 04:00:00



I have a Linux box at home and one at work, and have set up dialin access
on the one at work. I can connect successfully and login, but when I do
anything that produces more than a few lines of output (usually 5 lines),
screen output gets garbled up from about the 6th line. Here is a sample
output, so you know what I mean:

[robert~]1%ls -l /

-r--------   1 root     root       283601 Jan  8 18:27 vmlinuz.old

This problem only occurs when dialing in to the Linux box, not any of the
other computers we have (Sun Sparcs), so I suspect it probably is not
related to my comms software (mostly Minicom 1.70, but the same happens
when using Seyon 2.1).

I use a version 1.2.13 kernel on both machines, the remote getty is a
getty_ps v.2.0.7e, and the remote modem is a Hayes compatible 14.4 K
modem. (If you need to know the settings in any of the config files, let
me know and I'll post).

Has anyone had this trouble before? What can I do to overcome this
annoying problem?

*Any* advice very greatly appreciated,

Robert.

        This sounds like a TERM or emulation problem.  Are you sure you set
your variables correctly for your getty's?  Read the man page for getty.

1. Screen garbled help? NewbieQ

The Linux FAQ file sez when you screw up and try
to view a binary file and get strange characters
all over the screen you can fix it by typing
       echo ' \033c'

I think that means echo, space, single quote,
back slash, zero, three, three, lower case c, single quote

That doesn't work on my copy of RedHat Linux.  
Does anybody have any other suggestions?
