    1 The readline in IPython is broken. Installing the ncurses headers from the distribution (yum install ncurses-devel) fixes this.

     5The problem seems to be that the ancient libtermcap (no new releases since March 2002) is not enough anymore. I suggest to replace the termcap spkg with ncurses. Sage-5.9.beta3 builds fine. The only downside is that it takes ~2mb instead of ~300k, but on the upside the terminal is no longer broken.
