Issue 83: Boot time command line typing broken with no theme

Reported by MacMan, Jun 1, 2011

With the latest trunk build and with no theme every character is 
repeated and you can't backspace.

r940 should fix this issue.

Reopening this issue; i can't verify if the fix for the original 
issue worked, because it seems to have caused another?! Now i can 
only type one character; cursor keeps blinking but can't type 
anything; even ctrl+alt+del doesn't work. This happens while booting 
with GUI=n; if i boot with GUI enabled and use TAB to change to TEXT 
MODE, typing works fine and allows booting.

More news on this. Resuming:
- while booting with GUI=n, only one character can be typed into the 
prompt; after that the keyboard is useless.
- while booting with GUI enabled and using Tab to change to TEXT 
MODE, everything works properly.
- while booting with GUI enabled, typing at the prompt works fine 
until there's the need to correct something; just try deleting a 
character and continue typing to see the result.

Note: i reopened this issue assuming that what i'm reporting is 
related; if not, feel free to close it again and i'll open a new 
one. Thanks.

I probably won't be able to look into it for about a week + a half 
(after that I'll fix it if nobody else has by then).

Comment 7 by Cosmosis Jones, Jun 15, 2011

This appears to be working w/ fixes from azimutz. But we need to 
check out getc and getchar

Cosmo, as far as i can test, it's in the same state, if not worse!
I didn't even had time to start tracing this back; all i did was
replace the getc functions on the DEBUG's so, i don't don't know
what fixes are you talking about??

Anyway, all this stuff is starting to mess with my patience :-/
I'll get to you guys on irc when i get all my lose ends tied up.

Got same kind of issue with no graphics mode : you can't type 
anything, it blocks after one character. I had to reboot and boot 
without flag.
rev 1020 compiled by myself from trunk

Ok, since i was made owner of the issue, i'm going to take
care of it, reverting revs 925/6 and 940 back, in a way
that they'll be easy to reintegrate later.

Declaring "issue" fixed, though after looking at it 
i don't really consider it an issue.
Status: Fixed

Comment 15 by Evan Lojewski, Jun 17, 2011

Like I mentioned before, I'll fix it once I get back to the US. 
Since It's been reverted, I'll do some more testing before I commit 
the changes + fixes back in.

Comment 16 by Azimutz, Jun 18, 2011

Cosmo, Evan, sorry but i really needed the booter in reasonable 
working state. It's not even a question of "i"; this stuff 
is broken since May 30 and it's not the only problem with the 
prompt.. there are things broken for ages.

Evan, i know you'll fix it; like i mentioned, i don't consider this 
an issue anymore.. it's unfinished work.
Anyway, i didn't reverted it as in "removed it" and it was 
all done one commit so, it's pretty easy to get it back.
Just tell me when you need it back and i'll do it; you don't need to 
lose time with that kind of stuff ;)

I'll check with you guys on irc as soon as i get my Chazi up to 
date; i really need to get that done or my test setup is all broken.

I've added the changes back in and fixed the issue. Let me know if 
it doesn't work for you.
