Problem - autoexpanding filenames with a .<filename> format
a directory stack causes tcsh & xterm core dump
dies) -- fvwm2
Under RH5.2 - running tcsh with autoexpand.
ls on your .tcshrc file from another directory stack.
/home/lfwelty> pushd /etc
/etc> ls =1/.tcsh<hit tab to autoexpand causes core dump>
my .tcshrc file:
if ($?tcsh) then
bindkey -v # use vi key bindings on the
# command line
set autoexpand # expand substitutions ie '!$'
set autolist # list possible completions
set rmstar # Prompt user before execution of
set ignore_symlinks #upon doin cd .., this will put you
#were before doing a cd via symbolic
set listjobs=long #lists all jobs, when suspending, in
This is very reproducable -- happens every time.
I'm new to RH -- I've only run slackware before; so it could
my inexperience with the system, but this worked on
running kernel 2.0.0
Any help would be appreciated,
Replicated the .tcshrc of the user, but was unable to replicate
tcsh produces Segmentation fault after doing, e.g.:
cd /etc ; pushd / ; ls =1/ho<tab-key>
It shows the file list and then dies.
I have tcsh-6.07.09-1.i386.rpm installed in Red Hat 5.2.
For testing, I had no .tcshrc, .cshrc, nor .login.
