Re: Shell Link - Window dissapears...

Hello, I'm also fairly new.
  This may be the same as original complaint.
  I have also had problem using shell link.  When connecting Fish seems 
to put in extra cr/lf which takes top 3 lines of display off screen. mc 
then doesn't rewrite that portion of display or the non active panel or 
the lines at the bottom of screen.
  All that gets rewritten is the active panel after next command 
executed.  Many years ago used to use a DEC PDP11 a little and Control 
-R used to rewrite screen (if twenty years memory is correct). Have 
tried that but it doesn't help.
  Can't remember now whether problem occurs using PuTTy or SSh machine 
to machine from terminal. I normally use KDE and Konsole.

Pavel, you don't understand most usual trouble in whole IT =)

Maybe I don't - but a good problem report would make
it easier for me to understand.

Yeah, I believe this particular discussion (mc in putty window on
utf/non-utf linux) should leave its trace in some faq =) The
trouble is not only border chars, but defunct keyboard with wrong
TERM setting

This has been discussed on the mailing list many times. Searching
the archives should help. Setting TERM properly is vital for any
curses based app out there. I admit that it causes confusion but
this is how it works.

Yeah, I just mean a capitalized guidelines for newbies which use
putty in some reachable place like '
in RHEL 4 set TERM=xterm
in Debian X set TERM=whatever'

I.e. hints on what correct TERM settings might be in different
popular cases

With shell link it takes a total of 30 sec, with 24 of them
dedicated to the 'writing of data' and the next 6 to a pause
obscure to me.

As you can see, impact on larger files is even larger.
And this was not LAN! I used to use Samba and NFS to copy music
with MC at my home.

         * fish.c (fish_file_store): Improve the upload speed by
using the `head' utility when possible. Fallback to a new improved
`dd' method if `head' is not availaible or just stupid.

I don't know how slack build their MC package . You may want to
check whether this patch is included - if it is not icluded you
could ask the maintainer to add it. It should make a difference.

Sure, I'll check it. Is this part already a part of latest public
releases? I just gave that warning in assumption that may be Chris
lacks this patch too =)
