Pico crashes when pressing C-x C-s
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:45:18 EDT
Description of Problem:
Pico crashes when pressing Control-x followed by Control-s. This is the
keystroke used in emacs to save a file.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RedHat 7.3 release.
Press C-x C-s in pico.
This behavior occurs in other versions as well.
No, it doesn't crash.. What you're doing, is pressing CTRL-S, which
is XOFF flow control. This causes the terminal to no longer send data.
Press CTRL-Q to re-enable flow control.
Just don't press CTRL-S when running pico or other applications, it is
working as designed.
