    Terminal insert/delete characters problem
    Hello everyone!

    I'm new to Macs, but love every bit of it. I am currently trying to install MMC (MUD client) from sources. Installation process goes well and finishes without errors. However, when I run my newly installed app from terminal I get the following

    Can't initialize terminal: terminal cannot insert/delete characters

    Any ideas what that might be caused by?

    Thanks,

    Specs:
    Way... way too many specs to list.
    maybe try..

    export TERM=xterm


    or

    export TERM=vt100


    then try it again.

    export TERM=xterm

    and running mmc after produces a Bus error. I think it's getting somewhere )
