Can dselect display get shown on a serial console?
1. I am trying to run dselect on a serial console. Yet it seems that
`only ascii' screens like the main menu (the one with the possible
actions to choose from) and the screen where one can actually see
the installation process (that is the screen that is shown after
selecting I from the main menu) gets displayed properly. Some other
screens, like the unfulfilled dependencies screens are sometimes
cluttered with other characters. In particular, the space character
is replaced by something else. Is this a matter of correctly setting
the terminal and if so what do I need to do?
2. Actually, my setup is more complicated. I ssh from machine A to
machine B. On machine B I run screen. In one window of screen I run
minicom, which connect to machine C. And on minicom display I get
the terminal on which I run dselect. What do I need to do to get
proper display of dselect?
It should be noted that debconf has a proper display on the terminal
that was obtained by minicom. For example, I get blue background
and nice windows.
