Cscope problem - Search results invisible


Hi,

I am facing a weird problem. While browsing the C code of a project, the "Find this text string:" output results in a positive match, but the text is invisible [only the search results are invisible and not the menu]. The cursor moves up and down the list of results. Some of the lines are visible sometimes as you can see in the screen-shot below. I did try to change the background color [from black to white], removed any instance of cscope.out in the project folder, rebuilt the database.

The system is FC4. The cscope version in use is 15.7a.

Is this a known bug? Any solutions?

The screen-shots are taken using Putty. Same behavior is seen on gnome-terminal, konsole.

You don't say what terminal emulator you're using, but try another one. Sometimes, some text-menu programs don't like a certain emulator. So if you're using Konsole, try xterm, gnome-terminal, etc., and see if they work.

Also, FC4 is very, VERY old. Not surprised you're having problems with a current piece of software on that ancient system. The current version is FC12....
