I just downloaded the "unofficial" Mandrake 8.0 rpm from cran. So far the only
problem I've encountered is that my arrow keys no longer scroll through my
command history, but give ^[OA and ^[OB instead. Left and right arrow navigation
within a line is also broken. I checked previous reports, and when this was
reported in very early versions of R the suggested fix was to upgrade readline.
I upgraded to the newest available Mandrake rpm, which was readline-4.2-2, but
the behavior was the same. I was using the KDE terminal emulator, and tried
different keyboard layouts, but that didn't help either.
