Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 91688
radio application exits when cursor up is pressed
Last modified: 2015-01-07 19:05:15 EST
Description of problem:
run /usr/bin/screen on VT1 or other text console
inside screen run /usr/bin/radio,
enter any freq+<enter>
press cursor up or down
screen exits ( no messages are printed )
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always , see above
does this problem still appear if you just start xawtv directly on console (not
inside screen!) ?
It works ok on plain VT.
( 'g' <freq> <enter> 'crsr-up' -> crash )
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
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
this appears fixed in ncurses 5.4 in FC1
