It has been a looong time since I last posted here
(or even read the list), so please forgive me
if this is a known issue.
I have a VPS on Linode and they have a tool called LISH
which is a minimal environment that is accessible via
logging in via ssh on the _host_.
There is a screen session that shows the output from
/dev/hvc0 (which is hardware tty in Xen),
so you can access your system even if you locked
yourself from accessing it via ssh.
When doing pacman -Qi in that screen session
I get corrupted output like this:
<some text from the top of the host's tty buffer goes here first>
Install Date : Sun
Install Reason : Explicitly
Install Script : Yes
Description : Utility
This happens only when doing -Qi.
Any ideas about this?
And if it's a known issue - how to fix it?
