Heres what I got.  From the local linux console logged in.  I try to run Pine.  I get a message saying that my terminal is of type "dumb" and it boots me out.  If I go into x, I can open up an xterm and run pine ok.  Whats up with my terminal and how do i fix it?

Setting to "linux" works for me, like:

--csh--
setenv TERM linux

--bash--
export TERM=linux
