Fedora 18 is too Modern for Progress 9.1E

Written by James McDonald

February 5, 2013

Upgraded my home workstation to Fedora 18 and almost had an apoplexy when the following error was thrown when attempting to use a progress utility while connected to a remote server.

Unable to use your terminal. Check your PROTERMCAP file. (443)

** Could not find terminal type xterm-256color in file /u6/app/dlc/91e/protermcap. (146)

Turns out that Fedora 18’s move to the high color “xterm-256color” gnome-terminal causes progress to complain.

The work-a-round was to install PuTTY on Fedora 18 and it connected fine.
