Re: Help testing release candidate / mc-4.8.26-rc1


I just compiled mc-4.8.26 (release version) on two systems, one
ancient, one current gentoo and:

I can confirm this is fixed, thanks a lot!

2. I don't know if that's a current regression or if that already was
  the case in 4.8.25 and earlier: if compiled without slang, no mouse
  actions work anymore (has the curses code gone?)

As ABorodin wrote, known issue, also confirmed fixed.

3.: you should add the version to AC_INIT, so that PACKAGE_VERSION
   gets set correctly during configure. If not, generated docs have
   'mc-' instead of 'mc-$VERSION' (e.g. mc-4.8.25) as version in e.g. 
   the pdf ;)

Again known issue,, still
open but fix pending for .27 ;) I can live with a local fix until

But I noticed a 4th issue, both in 4.8.26_rc1 and 4.8.26 compiled
against ncursesw6, namely that e.g. Ctrl-Pos1/Ctrl-End in mcedit did
nothing at all (it works compiled against slang).

Anyone heard of that / noticed it? Any possible recent change in the
code that could trigger this? I can easily recompile, but I guess I'll
need to install the "broken" version under a different name, because
without mc/mcedit I feel crippled I use Ctrl-{Pos1,End} a lot ;)


The nice thing about Windows is - It does not just crash, it displays a
dialog box and lets you press 'OK' first.       (Arno Schaefer's .sig)
