Description alborchers 1999-06-17 01:14:59 EDT
Bash vi editing mode cannot be set in .bashrc with
"set -o vi" unless the /etc/inputrc file that is
installed with RH 6.0 is removed.

The /etc/inputrc file installed with RH 6.0 sets parameters
for emacs editing mode.  I think I could run "set -o vi"
from the command line and get it to work, even with the
/etc/inputrc file unchanged, but not from .bashrc.
Coworkers of mine have complained about the same problem.
