80 columns / 24 rows required ???
« on: March 09, 2004, 10:17:04 am »
Hi there,
if I connect my c760 to a unix host using telnet and start an app. in the terminal window on the host the following message appeares :
\"minimum of 80 columns / 24 rows required \"
and the app is terminated...8-(...
I also tried qconsole - same result.
What can I do to solve this problem ?

Zaurus 760 with sharp rom.

Thanx for any help !

Regards...

Have you tried reducing the font size and going full scree in qkonsole.

I am sure you shoukd be able to get an 80x24 readable screen in qkonsole.

Try fn-5 to go full screen and fn-1 to reduce font size.

Hi Peter,

I tried both : reduce font size and fullscreen - same result...8-(...
I think that the terminal emulation is the reason ?!?
But I don\'t know a lot about linux...8-(...
If I do an echo $TERM in the telnet session the result is vt100.

Any other ideas ?

Thanx for help !

What app are you trying to start?
what is the unix host (linux, sun, hpux, AIX etc)

I can happily telnet to my linux box without any issue, but I usually do this the other way round.

have you tried ssh instead of telnet?

Hi Peter,

it\'s a SUN host and I want to run sunvts and other solaris stuff.

In that case, when you log into the sun box your screen size is not being passed across, I presume you have managed to get the display bigger than 80*24 before trying to telnet across.

There is probably an env variable that may need to be changed manually.

I will have a look at our servers setup later today, but you could try ssh or try using a different shell on the sun box.

Do you have top instaled on the sun box? does that fill the screen?

Yould could try TERM=linux;export TERM.

I presume your sun box is running solaris if you want to run vts.

Hi Peter,

I\'d solve the problem by installing X/QT server from http://xqt.sourceforge.jp/download.html .

Great,
We use manily sun at work, but they have no wifi, and the pc\'s all use nt4 which does not support usb.  So I have never tried connecting to any of the work machines from my zaurus.

I may run across the same problem if I ever get round to setting it up.
