#12896 new defect

Output of ncurses applications is garbled in screen

Reported by: jj+openwrt@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Barrier Breaker 14.07
Component: packages Version: Attitude Adjustment 12.09 Beta
Keywords: screen ncurses terminfo Cc:


When starting curses based application in screen, the output migth be garbled, if graphic characters are used.

Similiar to this ncurses is not compiled with termcap but uses terminfo. In the current Makefile for Screen
termcap is used instead of terminfo.

To addresss this issue I have attached a dirty hack to this ticket. I have choosen the way of appending the necessary define to config.h, because it is less messier than patching configure.
