SubjectRe: New sysvinit-2.60 New: tgetent: linux entry too long...
I'd installed it with no problems, just the manual installation :-((. I'm
using 1.3.88 and the latest packages reported in this list, the only (that
I detected so far...) problem I'm having is with the support to the new
termcap package, particurlarly bash, that complains about the entry for
the "linux" terminal type, which it says: tgetent: entry too long. I
downloaded the latest bash release (1.14.5, I think) to no result... Any
