HTOP solution found!

New features which should be implemented in Porteus; suggestions are welcome. All questions or problems with testing releases (alpha, beta, or rc) should go in their relevant thread here, rather than the Bug Reports section.

HTOP solution found!

Ok, we know about the upstream issue about the xterm / xterm-256 environment variable.

Solution: include HTOP in the ISO distribution, AND put the alias in .bashrc for the users who don't know how to make an alias like that.

I downloaded and use htop and manually made that alias - seems like the inclusion of htop and the work-around alias wouldn't bloat Porteus too much. And one less utility to download.

Of course, to compensate maybe make more use of Busybox app links. CAL could be replaced for example. Maybe a few others....

What was I thinking? Keep the distro size down by NOT including HTOP, but merely aliasing it in ~/.bashrc

Code: Select all

alias htop 'TERM=xterm htop'
There's already on in there for MCEDIT, so I just jab this in there for htop.
