    Help - What Happened to My Favorite Hex Editor in Fedora 29???

    Hello All,

    I recently upgraded to Fedora 29, and I am a frequent user of Bless (the best hex editor around). ;-) I was saddened when I found out that something is broken with Bless in Fedora 29. It seems related to the new terminfo defaults and compatibility issues between F29's version of ncurses and mono (problem described here)? I found a work-around, but I would like to use all system defaults if possible.

    When I open a gnome terminal session, and echo $TERM, it is set to "xterm-256color". If I set $TERM to "xterm", Bless will function once again. When I attempt to run bless with the default "xterm-256color" setting, Bless crashes with the following:

    Unhandled Exception:

    Any ideas on how to enable Bless to work with the 256 color mode terminal? Thanks, in advance.

    wondering what Bless was, I found this. Perhaps it will provide some info, perhaps not.

    Change - the only constant.
