Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 75810
make menuconfig corrupted display
Last modified: 2008-08-01 12:22:52 EDT
Description of Problem:
After performing a clean install of RH 8.0 I tried configuring a custom kernel
using "make menuconfig". The menuconfig display was corrupted, exhibiting
blocks of color (black, blue) in inappropriate places. Selection highlighting
was also corrupted.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Run make menuconfig
Steps to Reproduce:
1. make menuconfig
Normally formatted display
This has nothing to do with make.
kernel menuconfig is probably not UTF-8 ready.
Same here. It probably has to do with the ncurses library?
I don't know anything about curses, so no further info, sorry.
Tried to 'setfont alt-8x8' but top no avail. Here we
go with 'make config' Ah well...
