Description Michal Jaegermann 2004-08-04 01:36:51 EDT
Description of problem:

In /etc/bashrc there is the following code:

# are we an interactive shell?
if [ "$PS1" ]; then
    case $TERM in
                if .....

It looks that it should be 'xterm*|gnome)' nowadays although
this does not help me at all if I am logging to a remote running
something earlier than FC3t1.  Sigh!

There are assorted traps of that sort all over the place.

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

In a holding pattern waiting for final decisions on TERM=gnome or not.

Comment 3 Joshua M. Thompson 2004-08-11 16:05:29 EDT
If we have to live with TERM=gnome it would be nice if there was at
least an updated /etc/bashrc pushed out as an update for FC1 and FC2.

TERM=gnome is dead.
