Default Console problem

Hi!

I have some problems with console (freebsd 7.2). When i press up arrow keyboard button to repeat previous command (history) and try to edit this line can't because overwrite text... Also have issue with text editor like emacs when type or press enter "25E" string apear again and again

All this things doesn't happen if i connect to box via SSH (pseudo terminal). In pseudo terminal all works perfect.

Regards,

Jurif

You probably have some messed up terminal settings, what is the TERM environment variable set to? Try setting it to cons25.

I removed TERM variable from my .bash_profile to pick up the setting from ttys automatically.

So now all editor works fine but tmux doesn't works from pseudoterminal.

Quote:
[abuser@gw:~] $ echo $TERM
vt100
[abuser@gw:~] $
Quote:
[abuser@gw:~] $ tmux new
open terminal failed: terminal does not support il1 or il
[abuser@gw:~] $

If i try to set TERM manualy to cons25 then tmux works but emacs doesn't works properly


Can you help me ?
