Re: Trying to debug: text entry fields not acceptin 'j' or 'd' character

Hi Yury and Everyone,

I downloaded configured and compiled the Slang 2.2.4 version of the lib file. (One version earlier than i 
had.) I recompiled mc (version .15) and the 'j' and 'd' keys have started working again.

I am hesitant to say that this fixed things as:

1. I still have the 2.3.0 Slang library in the /usr/local/lib directory (Couldn't find a make uninstall 
option to take it out)

2. My mac mini, what WAS always working, DOES use the Slang 2.3.0 version of the lib.

So something is different between the two, but i am content in that everything is working!

Thanks again to everyone for all their help!

So now we come to my question, what lib, etc., in mc would be responsible
for handling text entry. Is that gettext? i DO know that for the mac mini,
i am using an earlier version of gettext (0.19.4) and an earlier version
of pkg-config (0.28). I still need to see what variances for the other
pieces on the mac mini, but i just wanted to see if anyone could shed some
light on this?

Gettext is an i18n library and thus unlikely to be the cause of the problem.
I would first look at SLang if I were you, it's a screen library and might
indeed have something to do with your issue.

Are the versions of Mac OS X and system libraries identical on both
machines? If not, this adds yet another degree of freedom...

Sincerely yours,
