Xterm breaks more?

Xterm breaks more?

Post by Paul Johnst » Sat, 06 Aug 1994 17:47:00



Anyone else notice that more is broken when running in an Xterm? It outputs
1 page full and then exits. This doesn't happen with less.

I am running Kernel 1.1.0 and a full Slackware 1.2 distribution.

Cheers, Paul.

yup,
same behaviour (have not tried it anywhere else than xterm yet),
thought til now this specific MORE was broken.
 I'm running NCR-kernel 1.1.19 with slackware 2.0 .

Any clues?

Mark.

         Type 'stty sane' in the xterm.

        Yep, the same thing happens here with kernel 1.1.39 and a full
Slackware 2.0 distribution.  After one page it exits with "broken pipe".

        More seems to work fine with rxvt, though.

        Yes, that seems to fix it, but do you have to type that each time you open an xterm and intend to use more?

 
 
 

1. Make broken, top broken, flock errors, kernel modules broken

So many repetitive messages asking the same questions!  Does noone bother
to grep the topics for possible solutions?

Here are some of the answers to your problems:

If you upgrade to ELF libraries, you need an ELF linker:  get new ld.so.

If you upgrade your kernel, you will likely need to upgrade to (or higher):
termcap 2.0.8, proc-ps.0.99a, libc 5.3.12 (see below!), modules-1.3.69f,
gcc 2.7.2.

If you upgrade your libc, you will need to patch or upgrade make to make
3.74.

It may possible that when you upgrade your compiler, you may need to
install a new (ELF) libc.
