I've just installed RedHat 6.2 (with XFree86 3.3.6) on one of our PCs.
If I run X11 locally on it, everything is fine. But if I log in
through LAN from a Sun Solaris machine (OpenWindows - probably still
X11 R5?), soon after I use editor or 'less', the screen gets screwed up
- parts of it are in reverse video etc. I have found dozen or so
xterm* entries in /usr/.../terminfo/x directory and it seems that
if I make "setenv TERM xterm-r5" in the window where I am remotely
logged to the PC, it solves the problem. But this is not the solution
I would be satisfied with because it is not easy to automate - I have a
mixed architecture cluster of PCs and Sparcs and if I log from PC to PC
this would probably not be proper step to change the TERM this way.
Any hints on this topic? is there any "xterm*" entry in terminfo
directory which could serve as "universal xterm entry", applicable
to local use, remote from Sun and remote from another PC?
