I SUPed the kernel on Dec. 4, and it built OK. However, there is a VERY
If I boot this new kernel and log in, my terminal type is set to "su".
Needless to say, Vi, etc. don't like this very much.
If I boot with an earlier kernel, using the SAME binaries, my terminal type
is set to "vt200" which is correct.
I have verified this quite carefully.
How does the system figure out the terminal type at boot-up? I have nothing
set in my .profile or .login or .cshrc. The ttytab shows vt200 for ttye0.
Why should the kernel affect this?
Another question: has the proc structure size changed recently? Where can
I get a ps that works with the Dec. 4 kernel?
