Talk:Features/256 Color Terminals
This feature page needs to explain better how the feature will affect remote logins.
What does "degraded experience" mean? Will I simply get the same colors on the remote system that I get now, or will I lose a lot of other features?
If I SSH to a system that doesn't support 256 colors, sometimes from an X terminal, sometimes from a Linux virtual console, and maybe sometimes from Screen or some other kind of terminal, how can I set things up once and for all so that it works right in all cases? Is it enough to set TERM=xterm in all cases?
What if I SSH to a Fedora box from a system that supports only eight colors, or even just black and white?
Does the feature affect serial consoles, Telnet, Kermit et cetera in any way?
