Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 229127
broken redraw of aterm screen
Last modified: 2008-03-01 10:31:54 EST
Description of problem:
I'm using aterm with gnome, but I have some problem with redraw of some
applications that should be refreshed after event and uses ncurses. Basicaly
irssi and mc (see attached screenshot). I need to refresh (ctrl-l) it by myself.
Seems that it isn't caused by TERMinal emulation, I tried xterm, rxvt and vt102.
Reinstall didn't help as well.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
system up to date.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open aterm terminal
2. run some program that uses ncurses and need refresh-on-event feature
window of application got broken
screen will be automaticly redraw after event
I'm tired to do ctrl-l each time

Could you please give the rpm version and release numbers of the components and
not only the version numbers. Will see if I can recreate the problem. Do you
have any special aterm options enabled?
It's actual rpm in Fedora 6 aterm.i386 0:1.0.0-7.fc6
(aterm-1.0.0-7.fc6.i386.rpm). The problem occur with my usual options (-fg white
-tr -trsb -sh 35) but without too, so I don't think it's the problem. I can
reproduce this problem on my server which runs Fedora Core 6 with aterm from
repo too - so I think it's common.

Please, find here versions of other components as well. As you can see the
first screenshot is without any option and the second with my currect (see in
previous note) and the problem is the same.
The bug still persist in rawhide.
The problem is that aterm isn't support unicode, which is in Fedora not very
useful... rxvt-unicode is a good replacement for it.
