and subject line Bug#919159: Removed package(s) from unstable
has caused the Debian Bug report #257372,
regarding predict: Arrow keys generate bogus characters rather than move cursor
to be marked as done.
This means that you claim that the problem has been dealt with.
If this is not the case it is now your responsibility to reopen the
Bug report if necessary, and/or fix the problem forthwith.
(NB: If you are a system administrator and have no idea what this
message is talking about, this may indicate a serious mail system
misconfiguration somewhere. Please contact [hidden email] immediately.)
Versions of packages predict depends on:
ii libc6 2.3.2.ds1-13 GNU C Library: Shared libraries an
ii libncurses5 5.4-4 Shared libraries for terminal hand
ii netbase 4.17 Basic TCP/IP networking system
-- no debconf information
When trying to edit settings in predict, for example Ground Station
Information (G from main menu), using either the left or right arrow
key results in garbage being printed to the screen. This prevents one
from arrowing to an individual character and making a change. Rather,
only the backspace key is respected. Other keys such as Home and End
print garbage as well and should be respected. Other keys should be
ignored such as the up and down arrow keys unless moving through the
fields with them is desired.
Clearly, this is an upstream issue as I have noticed the same behavior
on my own compiled binaries.
