Nano Scrolls only half a page.

    I just installed Entware and I'm having problem with NANO editor. When I open any file in NANO and I start scrolling down, it keeps scrolling from half a page. How do I change that? I already checked nanorc file and couldn't find any settings for it.

    It's likely a terminal problem, but you're welcome to bring it up with the Entware folks directly (this is not an Entware support forum):

    One of the issues is that Busybox does not include a way to properly manage ttys (such as via stty). Otherwise I'd tell you to do: stty rows {numofrows} columns {numofcolumns}, ex. stty rows 43 columns 132 if your terminal window is 132x43.

    TomatoUSB and the Busybox environment are not the same thing as a standard Linux distribution; things like SIGWINCH and other things are very likely not handled in Busybox. The overall shell environment in TomatoUSB is extremely bare-bones and not what most people are used to, and this has an overall effect on pty/ttys.
