Emacs -- no keyboard in tty or xterm
I've just recently installed VectorLinux light on an older system; also installed Emacs using slapt-get.
Emacs works in X11, but when I launch it in either a tty or in an xterm (using the -nw switch), the keyboard does not respond. I can't type anything or issue any commands.
If I kill emacs from another terminal/tty, everything I tried to type is printed to the terminal, so it's like all the keyboard input is being buffered somewhere until emacs quits.
Does anyone know what's up with this?
