termcap2.0.8 and linux2.0.8

Post by bill pembert » Sat, 27 Jul 1996 04:00:00

pardon me if this is the wrong newsgroup:

i have noticed an annoying flash on the screen in console mode while editing
a text file with vi.  if i go to the end and try to move down a line the screen
flashes.  likewise if i go to the first line and try to move above that.
also, when in insert mode the buffer seems to puts a false space in the output
which is cleared up by an <esc> cntrl-l sequence.  i upgraded both linux (2.0.5
to 2.0.8) and termcap (from 2.0.0 to 2.0.8) tonight so i am not sure which is
the culprit, if any.  this problem is present in xterm sessions as well.

does anyone have an idea what needs to be updated, restored, recompiled, what
news group is best for this, or who should be contacted about this?

thanks for the help.


1. termcap2.0.8 ?? need new /etc/termcap

I recently upgraded from the slackware 3.0 distribution
to kernel 1.3.95 and termcap2.0.8 and now the behaviors
of the linux console and xterm are quite different and
annoying. Is there another /etc/termcap available to get
back to the slackware 3.0 behaviors, ie destructive
backspace, nondestructive arrow keys, and all that other
good stuff????
