Angry SOS "unknown terminal type"

I installed slackware 32bit 14.1 within my remote kvm based vps server. Everything was great until I did rm -rf /usr/share/* to save some disk space. How silly I was! What did I do wrong? Any rescue possible?

Every time I typed command top, I was warned "unknown terminal type" and top would not run. Also I could not start mysqld.

I solved this problem by reinstalling aaa_terminfo and mariadb.
