Description Jaroslav Henner 2013-11-19 11:23:01 EST
Description of problem:
The prompt, after ssh login to root looks like:

it seems \s in the $PS1 evaluated to -bash because the zeroth argument to it is, for some reason, -bash. It may be good to include the hostname, not the bash version to the prompt anyway.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. nova boot with following cloud-config and root ssh key injecting.
disable_root: false
2. add floating ip, ssh to the instance
3. observe the prompt

Actual results:

Expected results:
hostname in the prompt

Additional info:
-bash-4.1# echo $PS1
-bash-4.1# ps aux | grep bash
root      2317  0.0  0.0 108304  1956 pts/0    Ss   15:58   0:00 -bash
root      2632  0.0  0.0 103244   880 pts/0    S+   16:12   0:00 grep bash

1. ssh connect to booted image
2. check the PS1 
[root@localhost ~]# echo $PS1
[\u@\h \W]\$

Verified as above.
