Description Reuben Thomas 2002-05-13 00:54:21 UTC
Description of Problem:

The line in /etc/bashrc saying

if [ -x /usr/bin/tput ]; then

should be

if [ "$TERM" != "emacs" -a -x /usr/bin/tput ]; then

so that tput is not run in emacs shells, which doesn't work.

This implies emacs doesn't have a proper termcap/terminfo entry.

Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2002-05-14 23:07:42 UTC
What's the problem you're seeing? I'm not noticing anything when running shells
in emacs...

Comment 3 Reuben Thomas 2002-05-15 21:59:39 UTC
When I start a shell in xemacs (my own compiled version, but I have the emacs 
RPMs installed), I get:

"unknown terminal emacs"

Since I have emacs-21.2 installed, and there's no emacs entry in /etc/termcap (but 
there is an eterm), I presume there's something wrong. I will probably revert to the 
XEmacs RPMs now that you ship 21.4 in any case, but that shouldn't be the 

Comment 4 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2002-07-29 21:07:28 UTC
Closing, as I can start a shell multiple  ways in emacs and never see this.
