Description Stephen 2008-01-25 02:27:37 EST
Description of problem:

The users ~/.inputrc customizations are ignored by bash, contrary to the man
page and other documentation.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

1. echo "set page-completions-off" > ~/.inputrc # don't ask 'more?'
2. start a new gnome-terminal
3. echo $INPUTRC # /etc/inputrc
4. ls # M-?
5. bash asks 'more?', which should now be dissabled.

I strace'd bash and confirmed that ~/.inputrc is not read.

I also tried with a vt login. No change.

Actual results:

~/.inputrc ignored.

Expected results:

Should read users ~/.inputrc if exists.

Possibly .inputrc should exist in /etc/skel like so:

  $include /etc/inputrc
  # add customizations here...

Bash on a vt did after all read ~/.inputrc.

I am on crack...
