Description dc 1999-08-17 13:23:33 UTC
Syntax errors in /etc/profile.d/kde.csh (a c-shell script)
introduce problems for user accounts that have their shell
field in /etc/passwd set either to /bin/csh or /bin/csh.

Specifically, the syntax errors in kde.csh prevent the
startup files ~/.login and/or ~/.cshrc from executing.

I have resolved this bug by removing the syntax and logical
errors in kde.csh. Here is a copy of the original kde.csh,
followed by my repaired version. I leave it to Red Hat to
evaluate and/or improve upon my solution, as is appropriate:

Original version of kde.csh:

# KDE initialization script (csh)
if ( $?KDEDIR ) then
         if ( $KDEDIR == "/usr" ) then
         exit
         endif
endif
setenv KDEDIR /usr
kdepath="${KDEDIR}/bin"
if ( echo ${PATH} | grep -q ${kdepath} ) then
  exit
endif

setenv PATH "${kdepath}:${PATH}"
# end orignal version

------------------------------------------

# repaired KDE initialization script (csh)
if ( $?KDEDIR ) then
         if ( $KDEDIR == "/usr" ) then
         exit
         endif
endif

setenv KDEDIR /usr
set kdepath="${KDEDIR}/bin"

echo ${PATH} | grep -q ${kdepath}
if ( $? == 0) then
  exit
endif

setenv PATH "${kdepath}:${PATH}"

Please excuse typo in previous commentary.  Phrase should have read
"either to /bin/csh or /bin/tcsh."

Thank you,
