unable to delete input in appliance_console
Last modified: 2016-11-29 11:31:35 EST
Description of problem:
In appliance_console after text is entered it cannot be deleted and the backspace key generates ^H in the text input.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run appliance_console
2. press enter and get to a text entry field
3. enter text
4. use backspace
^H character in inserted into text field
last character is deleted
I can't reproduce this in an ssh session (terminal + bash), through the vsphere thick client, or using VMM on fedora. With what option in the appliance console are you seeing this behavior and how are you accessing the console? I suspect this is an issue with that particular system rather than the console itself.
Sorry for the delay; I have reproduced the error and can confirm it is an issue with xterm specifically. Most Linux terminals emulate a VT200 terminal, but xterm targets VT100.
Let me know if this helps, or if you would like additional information.
Closing this as it is an issue with a specific terminal rather than a bug in the console.
