Description jason 1999-08-18 08:46:10 UTC
On some machines --- probably those with less memory and/or swap --- the line limit coredumpsize 1000000 in /etc/csh.cshrc returns an error code and causes the TCSH and CSH shells to stop processing their configuration files. Among other things, this means that users .cshrc or .tcshrc files are not read. Replacing this line by limit coredumpsize unlimited fixes the problem. This seems to be related to bug 4071.

Fixed in setup-2.0.4-1.

*** Bug 4071 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. *** When ksh is used as the login shell and tcsh is invoked sometime thereafter within a shell or terminal this error message appears: limit: coredumpsize: Can't set limit This does not occur when you change shell in a terminal to ksh and then to tcsh - only when ksh is the login shell. This has existed at least since 5.0 Cheers, Dan ------- Additional Comments From email@example.com 07/16/99 14:09 ------- I have verified that this does occur as reported on a standard 6.0 install. It is being assigned to a developer for further review.
