Description Serge Volkov 2019-12-12 21:36:47 UTC
Prior to 1.3-20180621 cdialog would fill unused space at the end of the
line with the background color.  However, starting with 1.3-20180621
it doesn't. Instead, it seems to fill with whatever the terminal's
background color was prior to starting dialog.

Steps to reproduce on FreeBSD current:
cat /etc/rc.conf | cdialog --programbox 23 76

With older versions of dialog the box's background is a consistent
color.  With 1.3-20180621, the trailing unused part of each
line is filled with (on my terminal at least) black.

Details here https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-ncurses/2019-02/msg00010.html

The problem is evident in FreeBSD's ports tree's version.

The latest upstream version of dialog 1.3.20191210 fixes this problem for me.

Can someone update the version of devel/cdialog port?

Update to 1.3.20191210

Comment 2 Serge Volkov 2019-12-18 14:31:03 UTC
With such changes when building and installing the port, I get the following:

Registering installation for cdialog-1.3.20191210,2
(cdialog-1.3.20191210,2) /usr/ports/devel/cdialog/work/stage//usr/local/bin/cdialog - required shared library libncursesw.so.8 not found
(cdialog-1.3.20191210,2) /usr/ports/devel/cdialog/work/stage//usr/local/bin/cdialog - required shared library libc.so.7 not found
Installing cdialog-1.3.20191210,2...

However, after this, a new cdialog works.
Comment 3 Serge Volkov 2019-12-19 09:09:31 UTC
Sorry. I tried again to patch, make and install. And everything turned out without errors.
Comment 4 Josmar 2019-12-22 21:02:13 UTC
Tested the patch and it works correctly on 12.1-RELEASE-p1 and 11.3-RELEASE-p5.
The issue reported no longer happens on either.
Good job!

Can anyone update this port in the ports tree?

(In reply to Tobias C. Berner from comment #7)

I tried patch 212317. Then I compiled and installed the port. And everything turned out without errors. It works for me.

(In reply to Tobias C. Berner from comment #7)

I checked it with portlint and got no complaints.
The build with make in developer mode also ended without complaints.
Portmaster builded it happily.
It seems that poudriere is the only one unhappy with it (I don't use poudriere, BTW)
Comment 10 Alan Somers freebsd_committer 2020-08-08 16:06:36 UTC
I don't see any problems in Poudriere when building for 11.4 or 12.1.  I can't reproduce the failure that tcberner saw.  And the patch produces the desired effect on FreeBSD 13.  Can we commit it?
