Comment 1 Crutcher Dunnavant 2001-06-26 16:43:31 EDT
works in ver 3.9.9 in rawhide
Comment 2 Artem Veremey 2001-07-02 20:43:31 EDT
Still doesn't work in my RedHat 7.1 installation.
screen-3.9.9-1 (from rawhide)
Also "remote" screen doesn't scroll either. When I run a screen with -h option
from ssh to RedHat 6.2 / Solaris it doesn't scroll in
xterm/rxvt/gnome-terminal/etc on RedHat 7.1

Comment 3 Phil Copeland 2002-08-12 15:04:03 EDT
works fine

(3.9.9 and up)

[root@alpha root]# screen -h 600 -a
[root@alpha root]# ps -ef

<ctrl-a : >copy<return>
scroll around with h, j, k, l keys
<esc> to bail out of copy mode
