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):
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.
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.
This bug is being closed because it has been in the NEEDINFO state for a long

you and you can provide any information that was requested.
