Description Jonathan Kessler 2004-05-22 19:58:17 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040510 Description of problem: The reset command previously would clear the console and write a new prompt. In Fedora Core 2, the console is not cleared; the cursor just creates a new prompt on the top line. Then, whatever was on the screen is overwritten as you run commands. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gnome-terminal-2.6.0-2 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Run commands that cause the screen to contain text. 2. Type 'reset' and hit enter. Actual Results: The console has a new prompt at the top while leaving the rest of the text on the screen. Expected Results: The console is cleared and a new prompt is written to the screen. Additional info:

I have experienced the same bug on both AMD64 & x86 platforms. ADditionally, the terminal's buffer is not cleared, either.

Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
