More Problems...
Authored by: jonasbn on Oct 27, '02 07:25:02AM

I actually solved a similar problem in a very simple way.

Some terminal apps do not recognise the vt100-color terminal type, and therefor refuse to run.

Change the name of the terminal specified in the two files you are asked to download from vt100-color to vt100, which actually mean that you 'cheat' the terminal into believe it is a vt100, and it is but with colors.

So now pine, vim and everything else works (haven't tried emacs)...
