I use ferret on a system running Debian 2.1 (slink), and it works fine,
except for "spawn". Spawn crashes, saying option "-c" in bash
requires an argument. This does not happen with RedHat 6.1.

Running ferret on Debian (at least slink) requires the package
termcap-compat (I think it is under oldlibs). Installing ncurses, the
Debian default, is not enough.

I intend switching to Debian 2.2 (potato) when it is released. Since woody
is the unstable branch, are you sure the problem is with ferret? It may
just be that woody and the current linux version of ferret are not
