Hello,

My gnome terminal doesn't support xterm-256color

I have emerge xterm, but it doesn't help anything.

Code:

tom@NextZone ~ $ export TERM='xterm-256color'
tom@NextZone ~ $ clear
'xterm-256color': unknown terminal type.
tom@NextZone ~ $



A little puzzle.

Do you have:

/usr/share/terminfo/x/xterm-256color

From the ncurses package.
