Running screen from an X terminal gives a termcap warning
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:50 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
Hm... that message is actually from bash. Dunno why it pops
up there and not on the console.
It's a warning from libtermcap that the termcap entry
for screen is over 1023 bytes.
fixed in libtermcap-2.0.8-17, in next Raw Hide release.
