terminal is not fully functional

Post by Miguel Simon » Tue Apr 09, 2002 1:07 am

Hi...

This is an embedded system with a diskonchip. when I do:

more /filename

I get the message:

Warning: terminal is not fully functional.


the build file is a regular build.



Regards...

Miguel.

What is your TERM environment variable set to?

Do you have the terminfo tree? That is /usr/lib/terminfo
and the subdirectories and entries for the terminal type
you are using?

(Usually this is either /usr/lib/terminfo/q/qansi or
/usr/lib/terminfo/q/qnx, but if you're connected over
a serial port, it may be something else.)

Hm...and if that doesn't do it, the other useful file for
terminal definition stuff is /etc/termcap. (But, I think
more uses terminfo not termcap.)

Hi David...

Thanks. That did it. I was missing the /usr/lib/terminfo tree. Thanks
again.

Best Regards...

Miguel.
