bitkeeper cygwin messed up cygwin terminal setting for tcsh, lynx: dumb terminal?

Post by Ralf Hause » Sat, 08 Jun 2002 15:58:09



When I downloaded bitkeeper, it installed a stripped-down (no clue whether
it was the most recent) version of cygwin on top of the version I had
already installed.

Since, I get the following error when loading tcsh:

<<tcsh: No entry for terminal type "cygwin"

tcsh: using dumb terminal settings.>>

or lynx no longer runs and says:

<<Error opening terminal: cygwin.>>

Re-installing cygwin's tcsh wouldn't fix it.

Any hints?

 I have never seem this error before, my guess is that it is missing some
termcap/terminfo type package. You can download it from cygwin and install
it.

run C:> cygcheck --s cygwin
And look for the cygwin build date and the version of the dll, my guess is
that bitkeeper overwrote the cygwin.dll with a previous version. Possibly
you could even reinstall just the cygwin package to correct the problem.
