Description Deji Akingunola 2006-01-19 01:39:29 UTC
Description of problem:
Using the arrow-up key to browse grads commands history is broken. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): grads-1.9b4-5.1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open grads
2. perform some operations
3. press arrow-up to browse through previously typed commands
Actual results: each arrow-up keypress produce "^[[A"

Expected results: pressing arrow-up show display previously typed commands.

Additional info:
The rpms I built from the first and second grad src.rpm that was put up during
the FE review process does work as expected for me.

Comment 1 Deji Akingunola 2006-01-19 03:43:11 UTC
Ok, I found the solution. grads needs a build-time dependency on readline,
adding  readline-devel to the BR fix this issue.
