I've just started using midnight-commander. It's an amazing amazing tool. I have one issue though, it takes quite a while to start up sometimes. Sometimes it starts up immediately, while in other cases, it just has the cursor blinking. Has anyone experienced this? Any work arounds? I did find this, but I'm unsure if I should use it. I'm using it inside my byobu(gnu screen) session, if that makes a difference. My terminal emulator is the default gnome-terminal.
