          Hi.

          1.  Return back permission for file.

          2.  Set environment variable TERM to correct value.

                For example:    TERM=vt220 ; export TERM  

                You can try use dttem or xterm also.

           

          3. It's can depend from which type terminal used. Arrows key can  be not operable. Use keys:  h ; j ;k ;l - insted.

           

          4.  What reason fresh installation of Solaris 10 ?   This OS near OESL ( only extended support available).
