Description

Hello, i am using mc 4.8.1 on my ubuntu precise 12.04 lts server and when X11 forwading is enabled in sshd and my putty client (to localhost:0) with xming on windows the mc and mcedit are very slow. I am using a ibm x3100 m4 on a private network. It would be really nice to disable any calls to x11 with a command prompt if possible, or even better with a conf file. Gnome or xserver is not started by default and the server runs in runlevel 2.

I tried to update mc with adding a deb package, to my ubuntu system to update to the latest version, but the update of mc failed.

Report the bug about old mc version to Ubuntu bugzilla.

-X/--no-x11 option was introduced in 4.8.2 (#86).
