Description Nalin Dahyabhai 2007-06-05 11:20:11 EDT
Description of problem:
setup-2.6.6-1.fc8 introduces a new default precmd (as part of resolving bug
#199817), but that alias depends on the "HOSTNAME" environment variable being
set, which doesn't always happen.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. ssh -t rawhidebox screen -R
Actual results:
HOSTNAME: Undefined variable.
Faulty alias 'precmd' removed.

Additional info:
We probably want to check that the terminal is of a type which can even handle
this control sequence before setting it, too, as is done in /etc/bashrc.
Comment 1 Nalin Dahyabhai 2007-06-05 11:20:53 EDT
Oh, duh.  I should have mentioned somewhere that this change was made in
/etc/csh.cshrc, so it's only visible to users who use tcsh.
Comment 2 Phil Knirsch 2007-06-06 08:56:23 EDT
Urgs, good catch. I just took a look at the way we do it in bashrc and will
adapt the cshrc changes to match those again, too. The next setup package will
contain a fix.


Read ya, Phil

The new package doesn't appear to have made it out yet.
