I wish I could answer that.  I'm a FreeBSD user, not Linux...  I've 
never gotten terminfo to work, so I use termcap :)   When you do a "make 
install" in the tn5250/linux directory, it _should_ install the terminfo
stuff for you!

Maybe the Linux people on this list have some ideas?

I'd recommend updating to a newer version of tn5250.  (0.15.7 is old)
You could try http://cvs.cleveland.lug.net/module.pl?module=tn5250 to
find 0.16.0pre2.   or better yet, use CVS to get the current sources.

A search of the list archives for "CVS checkout" should give you info
on how to grab the current sources from CVS.

I don't think updating to the current version will solve your current
dilemna, but who knows?

Good luck
