I just upgraded to Slackware 2.0.0 from my Slackwere 1.1.0
installation (done with bootdisk&rootdisk + pkgtool&setup ) and everything
worked fine except that I get strange input/putput redirections of input to
and output from Shelltools and CommandTools (shelltool & cmdtool Openwin
I installed the bundled 1.1.18 kernel that came with Slackware
2.0 and I am using olvwm with Xfree 2.1.1. Everything is working fine.
Description of Problem:
Whenver an opened shelltool or commandtool is receiveing a lot of
scrolling (I can reproduce the problem by doing a: "ls -lR /dos" ), it
stops responding to given commands once it return to the prompt. Instead,
* If the command causing excessive scrolling was typed in a commandtool,
commands are just echoed to the /dev/ttyp* of the command tool and on
/dev/tty1 (console) I get messages like: "ioctl: not a typewriter" (when
pressing CTRL-C) and "ttysw_sigwinch, can't get tty process group: not a
* If the command was typed in a shelltool, commands do not appear in the
shelltool but are simply echoed to /dev/tty1.
Has anyone a similar problem? Or, even better, a fix for this problem? :)
I would really apreciate a little help about this since I am lost here
and maybe that strange input/output direction will be familiar to
someone. Should I upgrade to a newer kernel or downgrade to 1.0.9?
I will post a summary if I ever find a way to solve this annoying problem
and if someone is interested. Thanks for reading this.
