Re: [Xen-users] SSH Console issues with Ubuntu

When I login to a Ubuntu 10.04 virtual machine instance running in Xen through SSH, the console's lines are clipped at the middle section of my 15.6" screen. I'll be glad if somebody can suggest a fix. This is turning out to be very annoying.

What terminal program are you using ? I assume you mean that the lines wrap as though the terminal window is narrower than it actually is, and if so then it sounds like the terminal geometry isn't getting passed from server to client. I've noticed similar if I resize a window while in certain programs (I'm using the built in Terminal app on OS X), but if I resize the window again while at the prompt then it will sort itself out.
