Ticket #3208: mc-gpm-fix.patch

File mc-gpm-fix.patch, 1.6 KB (added by mikulas, 12 months ago)

Here I'm submitting a patch for this bug

  • lib/tty/key.c

    Hi
    
    I am sending this patch that fixes GPM bug.
    
    How to reproduce the bug:
    
    * compile mc with gpm support
    * run the gpm daemon on the console
    * login to the machine with ssh from console on another machine
    * run mc
    
    At this situation, keyboard response will be sluggish and mc will consume
    CPU time when idle. The reason is that mc is trying to reopen the Gpm
    connection over and over again and gpm will try to close the connection
    over and over again (because the user is not on the local console).
