Description Niksa Jurinovic 2005-07-11 18:50:30 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.2; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)

Description of problem:
`top` utility from procps doesn't function correctly. When window colors are changed, pressing 'W' doesn't save configuration file (.toprc) correctly, so the next time the top is started, the old black-and-white screen always appears (as if nothing were changed). Examining .toprc config file, it can be seen that labels on the left side are missing (Def, Job, ...). 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start top
2. Change the window colors
3. Press 'W' to save configuration file. Configuration file is saved (but not correctly). Restart the top utility. 

Actual Results:  Black-and-white screen appears as if nothing were changed.

Expected Results:  Colored window must appear.

Additional info:

This may be interesting: RHEL-4 AS 'procps' binary rpm package works OK on FC4. But, when source RHEL-4 'procps' rpm package is rebuilt on FC4, rebuilt 'top' works just as FC4 'top' (doesn't save .toprc correctly).
