Configuring Solaris and Linux Environments to Use Deployment Management

PPM can connect to a machine on which the environment variable TERM is set to dumb. To enable Deployment Management to work in Solaris and Linux environments, you must set this environment variable.

To set the TERM value on Solaris, run:

.login:
if ("$TERM" == "dumb") ksh

To set the TERM value on Linux, run:

.profile:
if [ "$TERM" = "dumb" ]
then
    EDITOR=null
    SHELL=/bin/ksh
    export EDITOR
    VISUAL=null
    export VISUAL
    stty erase '^H'
fi

To set the TERM value on Linux 2.1, run:

.cshrc:
if ("$TERM" == "dumb") sh
