Subject: some characters from stdin are not carried over
Date: Sat, 8 Dec 2001 15:35:53 +0100
Package: dpkg
Severity: minor

When dpkg is invoked from command-line, at some stage
of its operations input characters are not carried over to
appear on the next shell prompt (as it happens on every
command i've seen), but are lost. This prevents the user
from typing commands to get them 'in queue' to be executed
after dpkg.

Regards

I meant to say that during the unpack/postinst process, dpkg reads from stdin,
and then discards input.

It's just I didn't have a clue to express it properly when I wrote that mail ;).

Version: 1.15.7

Hello,

I just tried with a recent dpkg and I could not reproduce it.
Any character typed while dpkg was running ended up on the shell once dpkg
exited.

So closing the bug.

Cheers,
