Hello managers,

i asked:
>i'm working on a Sparc 10 under Solaris 2.6, all recommended
>and y2k-patches installed.
>I have installed some gnu-utilities, without errors or warnings,
>but now have two terminal-related problems.
>I've tried with xterm/dtterm and csh/tcsh/bash and on 2 different
>standalone machines.
>When i use less (e.g. as "ls -lR | less")
>it starts with a message
>> WARNING: terminal is not fully functional
>> - (press RETURN)
>and after <Return> it displays my listing.
>I can't get gnu info starting properly. When i enter "info",
>the only thing happening (written to the screen :) is an error:
>> info: Terminal type "xterm" is not smart enough to run Info.
>> info: Terminal type "dtterm" is not smart enough to run Info.
>To me this sounds like a termcap/terminfo problem.
>Can someone please tell me, where exactly to look for it and what
>to do to fix it?

and got only one response, asking what shell i use :(
The problem still exists
