Hi all,

After setting up most of the required software, i start to fine-tune my
system and to remove some bugs and inconveniences.

Quite nasty is the fact that in less in a xterm the end key is not
working. If i p.e. do a 

# less /var/log/sys.log

i can't use the end key to get to the end of the file. Yes, i now know,
that there is Shift-G, but i wish to have the same keys than in a normal

Is there anything like .inputrc for a xterm?

Kind regards
