xterm termcap entry on Redhat 6.2


My system doesn't have xterm entries in termcap. My linux Redhat 5.x system always had the xterm entries. Why does my Redhat 6.2 system not have these entries in termcap. How can I get them added?

Redhat moved away from termcap, to use terminfo. It's likely that "infocmp xterm" will show this on your system.
