      > Hi all. I am using Slackware 11 on an i8600. When I type: echo $TERM, I get the result "linux." This of course is not in X, where I actually get the result "xterm" as I should. I looked in the /etc/profile file and saw that "linux" is used when the term type cannot be determined. I'm trying to find the actual term type. I really don't know where to start looking in /etc/lib/terminfo for my terminal. Any hints where to go to find out this information? Thanks--Douglas
