when using the linux command top, i noticed that i was getting the following error message printed out from my server, in my Mac OS x terminal.‘xterm-16color’: unknown terminal type.
Well, I was wondering what the heck was happening, and it turns out in my .bash_profile file, i had input an export terminal type that wasn’t supported by the server.
all i did was delete the line below from my .bash_profile file.
Your mileage may vary, but there is little on the web that tells you how to fix it, so here you go.
