Description Brian Ryner 1999-06-17 17:56:51 EDT
If I start screen from an X terminal (such as
gnome-terminal), I get the message:

tgetent: warning: termcap entry too long

Screen still works though.  I'm using the updated screen
package (screen-3.7.6-9).
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-06-17 18:37:59 EDT
Hm... that message is actually from bash. Dunno why it pops
up there and not on the console.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-08-17 18:42:59 EDT
It's a warning from libtermcap that the termcap entry
for screen is over 1023 bytes.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 1999-08-31 15:21:59 EDT
fixed in libtermcap-2.0.8-17, in next Raw Hide release.
