Description Hans de Goede 2000-01-19 21:43:14 UTC
The termcap entry for xterm has a few problems:
-it is based on xterm-r6, whereas terminfo is based on xterm-xf86-v40
-it doesn't contain an entry for end (@7)
-the delete entry for the xterm-xf86-vxx entries is wrong

The attaced patch fixes these 3 problems.

Comment 2 Hans de Goede 2000-01-19 21:46:59 UTC
This patch is different from the one I send you (bero) by email, since it now
uses xterm-xf86-v40 for xterm just like the new ncurses rpm's do.

Comment 3 Hans de Goede 2000-01-30 14:09:59 UTC
Please change termcap-fixes.gz to the patch attached to this bug report, it is
identical except that it maps xterm to xterm-xf86-v40 instead of xterm-xf86-v33,
this matches the changes made to terminfo in the ncurses-5.0-6 release.

Comment 4 Preston Brown 2000-02-01 20:50:59 UTC
fixed in termcap-10.2.7-4 and later.
