Thanks. But now lxterminal segfaults.  :o

BTW, alsamixer wants ncurses 5 also.

/etc/sysconfig should be root.staff, not root.root.
Same for /etc/sysconfig/backup_device.

@andyj
It doesn't matter the app is old - it uses valid APIs and there's a bug in the VMWare driver. Without reporting they might never know about it.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

I decided to follow the advice on the aterm website and use rxvt instead. It works as expected: no scrolling problems like aterm, no strange window warping like lxterminal, no segfault like lilyterm, and the 256 color and true type fonts work. The apps browser downloads work and alsamixer works. I haven't tried unicode fonts. I'll submit it after I test it some more. If there is something else I could test I might give it a try.

When I ran tce-update shouldn't it have also updated *.dep files? I've come across some out of date ones. Or is there something I need to do different when using tce-update?

I guess you'd need to use the apps gui -> maintenance -> dependencies and deletions.

The permissions for these have not been touched?

Boot with base norestore and you will see that EVERYTHING in /etc is root.root.
This is not the case with 7.2 and is the reason for the error messages when running baqckup.

Is there a CLI non-interactive way to do this on a text only system?

Yes, "tce-audit updatedeps".

You're right, but at the moment I have no idea why  :(
