if you are ssh'ing in and the other side does it too have a .bashrc, or which side controls that? in that side I'd try setting in that something that would auto set your term to xterm so you can always be a happy camper whenever you're ssh'ing to update your system or even locally.

I update in Eterm too and have no issues btw. though it is an off shoot of xterm, now that I think about it.

That helps me. But that doesn't help any other unsuspecting users. Maybe slackpkg could warn and exit. Or maybe set a compatible TERM for itself. Or maybe install that one package correctly regardless of TERM. Then nobody else would have to care.

the install scripts are scripts so they can be modified and submitted. I personally have never had this issue. this is the first time I've ever seen it.

I think somehow your system cannot find the apropriate xterm-256color terminfo. try running:

Code:
infocmp -I xterm-256color
and see if it can find the apropriate terminfo file and display the compiled capabilities info.

Sorry, I already revert the VM and re-upgraded it. I have other setup/config/testing I need to get done.
I have scheduled downtime this Saturday night that I don't want to miss.

My guess:

The part that caused the problem was the doinst.sh file that was in the aaa_terminfo package. It has nothing to do with slackpkg; you would have had the same problem if you'd used upgradepkg instead of slackpkg.
