The trick with no GUI is getting the keys mapped properly. How you do

it.


You're probably thinking of http://www.chowhouse.com/~james/tn5250-HOWTO.pdf
.

It can also be tricky getting the program to start automatically with the
right TTY settings without a login. We had a modified getty line in
/etc/inittab that started a shell script, that statred login with the right
options, that started tn5250 with the right options. We probably still have
the whole thing saved somewhere.
