NCurses Help

evanartevanart Posts: 1Member

I have create an application using ncurses. This program is run from a boot disk and it is called immediately once the system boots from the boot disk. After the GUI is displayed using ncurses, the system is still loading some of the drivers or etc that print messages on the screen which overwrite my GUI. Is there a way to prevent the messages from overwriting my GUI?

Is there some function which I can call to refresh the screen during intervals automatically?
If it has to be done manually, I think I will need to call a separate thread to start a timer because once the GUI loads, I will call getch() to wait for user input.
