Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 430202
Last modified: 2008-01-25 02:44:52 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):
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.
Should read users ~/.inputrc if exists.
Possibly .inputrc should exist in /etc/skel like so:
# add customizations here...
Bash on a vt did after all read ~/.inputrc.
I am on crack...
