Yes, i recompiled and re-installed the two packages
rtems-4.5.0-beta3a and rtems-packages-19991215.

But i will remove all the packages and start afresh again.

Did you recompile and reinstall after makign the above change?

The above is only 1/2 the problem.  Eric Norum and I believe
that TERM has to be set properly in the environment for the
ncurses tests to work.  psim's startup code does not do that.

My suspicion is that you are seeing different manifestations
of the same failure.  Let's backup and see what the code
is doing when it fails hard on RedHat.  Once that is fixed,
we can address the Slackware garbled output.
