This tip fix display problem with Midnight Commander in FreeBSD 7.1 and FreeBSD 7.2 (white lines does not appear).

Before installing Midnight Commander from ports, disable UTF8, X11 and libSlang.

cd /usr/ports/misc/mc

make config

>>>disable UTF8, X11 and libSlang

make clean; make deinstall; make reinstall


(the problem is caused by a bug in slang2 library).

UPDATE:The bug was fixed, now if you install FreeBSD 7.2 and cvsup to RELENG_7_2 (leaving checked every option as default, including UTF8 checked) midnight commander looks ok.
