Description of problem:
Less performs very poorly in reverse searches.
For instance more -n /var/log/messages.0127
(-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 585213852 Jan 27 10:05 /var/log/messages.0127)
(file not being written to)
G to get to bottom of file
to find the text
Same file, (G to get to bottom, 1G to get to top) and /search
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
More seems to have trouble on open files on FC4 as well. Not sure if its related. On this busy syslog server more can take a very long time to open /var/log/messages and perform slowly on operations on it.
Note that the latest version is less-394-1.fc4. Could you try this again with
the latest less?
This works substantially better with less-394-1.fc4
Sorry, I was having some trouble getting yum updates for a while.
Ok, closeing NOTABUG then. Thanks anyway.
