Description A.J. Aranyosi 1999-06-30 18:28:21 UTC
The file /etc/profile.d/kde.csh in the updated kdesupport
package (kdesupport-1.1.1-1) contains the followine line of
sh code:
which should read
  setenv kdepath "${KDEDIR}/bin"

Net result:
When a user whose default shell is csh tries to log in (or
open an xterm, etc), the script fails at this line, printing
the following message in the user's window:
 kdepath=/usr/bin: Command not found.
 kdepath: Undefined variable.
The user's .cshrc is not executed.

Comment 1 A.J. Aranyosi 1999-06-30 18:35:59 UTC
One more change:  the line
 if ( echo ${PATH} | grep -q ${kdepath} ) then
should read
if ( `echo ${PATH} | grep -q ${kdepath}` ) then
