Bash dialog show infobox script on RHEL 6.2
 
I'm using dialog to make it possible to manually backup a directory.

I need to run a few pre backup scripts and I want to show which script is running, however as soon as the script is called the screen turns blue instead of showing me the dialog infobox.

This is an example:
Code:

#!/bin/sh

dialog --clear --title "Stop c-tree" --backtitle "company name" \
      --infobox "Stopping c-tree server" 20 5
/path/to/bin/ctree.sh stop

So as soon as I run the ctree.sh the screen turns blue instead of showing me the infobox.

I Hope you can help me.

You are using --clear and --infobox together so only "clear" is executed.
try
Code:

dialog --clear
dialog --title "Stop c-tree" --backtitle "company name" --infobox "Stopping c-tree server" 5 20

/path/to/bin/ctree.sh stop
