tcsh history is broken. Even if I do "source -h .cshrc" the
history will still be blank with "set history=1000", If I
"set history=10" it will remember what I "source -h" but not
any commands I type.  bash works perfect.

I believe this is a 21264 specific problem as it does not
occur on my 21064.  It may even be a SMP 21264 unique
problem.  I've also tried rebuilding tcsh from SRPM using
the patched egcs compiler to no avail.

The fact that history didn't work at all was because of bug #3686.
It was the bugs in the kde scripts (kdesupport).  After applying
fixes for bug #3686 history works for the current session.

However, I do notice that history is still not preserved between
sessions.  It this just a configuration change?

do you have a ~/.history file?
Comment 3 niles 1999-08-23 21:45:59 EDT
I had to add both a ~/.history file and "set savehist=1" to get
it to work between sessions.  I've never had to do this under
Redhat/i386.  Funny...oh well. Thanks!
