Description khera 1999-06-24 22:17:29 UTC
I upgraded to the kde 1.1.1 release posted to
updates.redhat.com, and the next time I logged in, there was
a syntax error reported prior to my .login or .cshrc being
run.  I tracked this down to syntax errors (at least under
tcsh) in /etc/profile.d/kde.csh.  According to the csh
manual, these fixes should be there as well (ie, you can't
use a pipeline inside an if() statement).

*** Bug 3709 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

The following bug(s) cause an error every time a user tries
to login or execute a shell, if their default shell is
csh/tcsh.  It also halts processing of the user's own
customization files.

The 8th line in /etc/profile.d/kde.csh says:


Because this is for csh, not sh, it should read:

  set kdepath="${KDEDIR}/bin"

Also, lines 10 through 12 that read:

  if ( echo ${PATH} | grep -q ${kdepath} ) then

should read

  echo $PATH | grep -q $kdepath && exit
