- Subject: resize command hangs from ssh session
I've searched the archive and can't seem to find anything
applicable. My problem:
Win2000SP2 CYGWIN_NT-5.0 1.3.6(0.47/3/2) 2001-12-08 17:02 i686 unknown
OpenSSH_3.0.2p1, SSH protocols 1.5/2.0, OpenSSL 0x0090602f
Open a Cygwin command shell (my default is configured to 80x45)
ssh to a RH Linux 7.1 box
Change the window size to, say, 80x60
Run the 'resize' command (on linux host)
The text cursor jumps to the bottom-right corner of the window
(this is normal) and just stays there (this is not normal).
resize never returns. This behavior ALWAYS happens even if
I don't physically resize the window (i.e. run resize
immediately after logging in and it still hangs).
I've tried setting TERM=ansi, TERM=vt100 and TERM=cygwin
in the Linux shell with identical results.
If I logout (back to cygwin shell) and re-ssh from
the resized (80x60) window everything works and the
COLUMNS and LINES environment variables are correctly set.
As I understand it, resize sends a specific terminal control
sequence that requests the hardware to reply with the current
size. I assume that either cygwin's bash isn't playing just
right, or something gets garbled over ssh.
As a side note, I tried running resize locally (in the
cygwin bash shell) and it fails looking for cygncurses5.dll,
which is not in any of my bin directories. I did find
cygncurses6.dll in /usr/bin. Is this related or just a
Suggestions on how to debug this further?
