Description cadams 1998-11-12 17:14:38 UTC
The libtermcap doesn't properly handle the /etc/termcap file in RH 5.2. First, it doesn't handle more than one "tc=" attribute at all. Also, it doesn't grok "%p" in the attribute strings. I will send two patches (one for each of these bugs) after I file this bug report. With these two bugs fixed, the "vim-color" package is not needed (because then the termcap version can do color just fine).
Comment 1 Derek Tattersall 1998-11-19 17:06:59 UTC
The accompanying patches are supposed to fix the color problem.
Comment 2 Preston Brown 1999-03-18 14:44:59 UTC
Mike I think you are handling termcap testing, can you take care of these changes? They all look sane to me, including removal of vim-color...
Comment 3 Preston Brown 1999-03-25 22:19:59 UTC
our new termcap and terminfo work fine with regular vim in color on both the console and in X under xterms, so vim-color has been removed.
Comment 4 cadams 1999-05-14 18:48:59 UTC
These bugs are still in the libtermcap package in RH 6.0. The same patches as before still are needed to fix the problems. If I am on a RH 6.0 Linux console and run vi, I don't get the colors (all I get is some bold text). The problem is that libtermcap doesn't handle the "tc=" attribute, which includes another termcap entry. The "linux" entry has 3 tc attributes, which are not picked up correctly.
Comment 5 Jeff Johnson 1999-05-15 18:51:59 UTC
Patches applied. Thanks for persisting. The miscommunication appears to be another confusion between the termcap based minimal /bin/vi and the terminfo based featureful /usr/bin/vi.
