Hi boys and girls,
I'm having a little problem and I hope someone could help me out.
The problem arises whenever I try to modify any file on my solaris system using vi. I'm using Solaris 10 and Mac OSX operating Systems. I'm connected to Solaris through SSH.
Now, when I try to modify any file, I tend to get this message (shown below). How can I get around this?
xterm-color: Unknown terminal type
I don't know what kind of terminal you are on - all I have is 'xterm-color'.
[Using open mode]
"shutdown" [Read only] 218 lines, 4094 characters
The result is the same if I run the command from both the superuser console or just an ordinary cosole.
Thanks in advance.

set your terminal type to vt100 and you should be okay.Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, It's about learning to dance in the rain!
