terminal problems

Post by Stephen M. Wait » Mon, 13 Jul 1998 04:00:00



I'm trying to use a Wyse 50 terminal with Linux 2.0.30.  I can login.
The problems appear when I do a ls -l.  The output has no line feeds and
it just writes over itself.  However when I cat a file the output
scrolls fine.

I know all of my hardware is setup fine because I can telnet to a SCO
Unix box and there are no problems.

Any ideas?

1. Serial terminal problem!

I am connecting a null modem cable between my COM1 port of my W95
computer and COM2 of my FreeBSD 3.1 box.

Following the instructions listed in the Handbook, I can't get a login:
prompt.  The FBSD box is an older machine with 8250 UART chip set.  The
terminal program (Netterm) is able to attach to COM1 without error.  If
I disconnect the serial cable while Netterm is actively connected to
COM1, I get a "Terminal disconnected" error.

Here is my entry in /etc/ttys:

ttyd1   "/usr/libexec/getty std.19200"  vt100   on  insecure

Here is my ps -axww|grep getty:

 1227  ??  I      0:00.05 /usr/libexec/getty std.19200 ttyd1
  283  v0  Is+    0:00.07 /usr/libexec/getty Pc ttyv0
  284  v1  Is+    0:00.06 /usr/libexec/getty Pc ttyv1
  285  v2  Is+    0:00.07 /usr/libexec/getty Pc ttyv2

My concern is the ?? for the ttyd1.  I'm not sure what that is telling
me, but I think it is a key to the problem.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Regards,

Mark
