Description Olivier Baudron 2003-01-23 09:11:16 EST
After the upgrade of ncurses from 5.2-29 to 5.3-1, mutt and lynx don't display
colors anymore.
Comment 1 Thomas E. Dickey 2003-01-23 14:37:32 EST
some issue with the patches Redhat makes to the terminfo file (5.3 has the same color behavior as 5.2, with/without wide-character support).  But I haven't seen the "5.3-1" rpm.
Comment 2 Eido Inoue 2003-01-23 14:40:26 EST
5.3-1 unfortunately did not patch the terminfo src for our xterm so it would
include color. accepting and fixing.

Comment 4 Sammy 2003-01-29 14:19:02 EST
Same problems with ncurses-5.3-2. 
Also, downgrading to ncurses-5.2 of Phoebe leaves dangling symlinks to libcurses.so 
and libcurses.so.5. Needless to say no ncurses bases application works until the  
symlinks are recreated by hand. 
Comment 5 Eido Inoue 2003-01-31 15:27:36 EST
xterm-redhat entry has been added to ncurses-5.3-3, which should fix the colors.
Comment 6 Jay Turner 2003-02-03 12:32:26 EST
Fix confirmed with ncurses-5.3-3.
