does this problem still appear if you just start xawtv directly on console (not
inside screen!) ?
Comment 2 David Balažic 2003-05-28 02:38:45 EDT
It works ok on plain VT.
( 'g' <freq> <enter> 'crsr-up' -> crash )

But :

On plain VT : "TERM=vt100 radio"
has the same problem !

Inside screen on VT : TERM=linux radio
does not have the problem ( has other problems , background
is not colored, but black )

It behaves exactly the same on RHL9 Shrike too.
Also it has this bug when run inside gnome-terminal-2.2.1-3 and XFree86-4.3.0-

Red Hat Linux 8.0 (Psyche)
Same as Shrike, except it does not exit in gnome-terminal-2.0.1-5


For testing without a radio card, I suggest commenting out the radio accessing 
Comment 3 Ngo Than 2003-05-28 07:37:47 EDT
ok, i have removed the radio accessing functions and it crashs with TERM=vt100
or TERM=screen on my machine

It's a bug in ncurses. Workaround, you should set your TERM=linux

Comment 4 Eido Inoue 2004-04-19 15:12:53 EDT
this appears fixed in ncurses 5.4 in FC1
