Midnight Commander error


I am using Mandrake 9.1 and have installed the mc package coming wihth it. MC works perfectly well inside a terminal window under KDE, but if I use it on a console (no matter whether as user or root) it produces an error 'liblow.c(371)' and tells me 'Oh, oh! It's an error! Possibly I die!'. Well, it doesn't it seems to work ok, but somehow the menu row is pushed up outside the viewable area, which is a nuisance but not a big problem. The program seems to work correctly otherwise, but I'd still like to resolve this issue. Can anybody help me?

I poked about on the web and it looks like there's a bug in gpm 1.20 - is that what you're using? I'm using 1.19 and have no trouble with mc. Either that or maybe gpm was compiled without mouse support and you have it running or compiled with and you don't? Something like that. I don't really know but neither does anyone else, it seems, so I figured I'd post.

Apparently I didn't have gpm installed, at least the package manager of Mandrake offered to install it when I checked. I did, but the error persists. It is 1.20 though; maybe I'll try a downgrade. As it is MC works fine inside a terminal window which is enough for the moment.

I'd still be interested in further opinions though.

'gpm was compiled without mouse support'

Be hard to say anything that made less sense. I meant 'mc was compiled without mouse support'. Sorry. *g*

Yeah - I was just shooting in the dark - it's probably something else entirely. Hope you do get somebody to help you with that.

To tell you the truth, I did wonder about that, but I thought maybe gpm does more than add mouse support to the console...
