Description Charles R. Anderson 2008-02-07 22:27:27 EST
Description of problem:

/etc/profile.d/colorls.csh has this syntax which is invalid in csh/tcsh:

eval `dircolors -c $COLORS 2>/dev/null`

You can't redirect ONLY stderr in csh/tcsh.  It isn't supported.
Not sure what the intent is here, but you can redirect BOTH stdout/stderr with
>&.  See this for description of the issue and some workarounds:

6.10-5.fc9

Will not redirect anything - this was the way how it works in F8. Done in
coreutils-6.10-7.fc9 , closing RAWHIDE.
