Subject: [gentoo-user] htop showing black screen
Date: Fri, 02 Mar 2012 21:52:15
1 Hello everyone,
2 I've recently installed 64bit hardened gentoo server in VirtualBox on our
3 main server and I've emerged htop. After running it I *got only the black
4 screen*, i wasn't able to kill it with ctrl+c and after that even *'kill
5 -9' stopped working* from any other console/ssh session. I wasn't even able
6 to run 'ps' or 'top', I could only end the ssh session. After losing some
7 bunch of hairs I've *recompiled sys-process/procps* and everything went
8 back to normal with htop happily working. So I'm just writing to let anyone
9 know in case you run into some similar problem. I am curious if anyone has
10 any explanation, but I've personally sorted that problem into
11 weird-and-not-to-be-curious-about-anymore group.
12 Regards,
13 Peter
