Description hamiltok 1999-06-29 19:15:11 UTC
I have a program using curses that needs to change the
terminal to b-break mode and non blocking character reads.
The program worked properly with Red Hat 5.2 on an Alpha.
With Redhat 6.0 on an Intel machine (kernels 2.2.9 and
2.2.10), if cannot change to nonblocking mode and the wgetch
is completely screwed up. It is just hanging the program at
a call to wgetch. It registers alright trying to switch into
nonblocking mode but after that when I try to read
characters, it does not work.

Can we get a small example that will help us debug the problem?
