...Running man. What's this? I can't move the manual page up (by up-arrow), only down (by enter).

Can you can fix the terminal error by setting $TERM to
something like linux, xterm, or vt100? Have you tried that yet?

Well until you get it resolved (im checking for a work around now) you can always use shift+pageup and pagedown to navigate. That should make it a lil more bearable.....

actually, I'm running into this problem, and it's much worse for me than just man. I can't use less, nano, or anything else that needs access to the terminal. When I reboot, all the colors and formatting (for example, the "OK" messages are not aligned right, and show up in white (instead of the usual green). I get the same errors when I try to ssh in (which I can also no longer do as root; it won't accept my password). The backspace key now send the cursor to the right, and the TAB key doesn't work properly. When I quit out of less, the blinking cursor is red.

I can't emerge nvidia-drivers, and can't read the build.log.

This is a pretty severe problem for me, as I now can't do any system maintenance at all.

Can you please look into this? This happened after a recent update (I emerged @world after a --sync a week ago), and I have no way to figure out what went wrong. Switching back to the previous kernel (4.1.6 from 4.2.0) did not fix it.

Cheers,

EE

@ExecutorElassus

Look at the post date of the topic

As for your problem: I think it's probably ncurses related, look for those topics.

the ncurses mess

first devs removed first slot package, than second sclot package on my box.
suddenly it installed the removed one again on sunday...

rebuild ncurses, and than bash

if nothing works downgrade to 5.9 ncurses on both slots and try again...
