I am most of the time accessing the Beaglebone through the serial console using Putty. Every time I open a vi or nano editor, the number of lines that is actually used is set to 25, even if the window is much larger. Worse than that, after leaving the editors, that size stays permanent and requires a “Reset Terminal”. I’ve also tested several of the disabling functions but none of them helped.
While working over a ssh console, it is not a problem, even with Putty.
Anyone who knows how to get rid of this problem. Not answer “use Teraterm” or others please, the question is only for Putty.
