Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 449985
colorize files with capabilities
Last modified: 2008-07-31 09:50:20 EDT
Description of problem:
'ls' command should colorize the files with capabilities like it does for setuid
#setcap cap_net_bind_service=ep test.log
test.log = cap_net_bind_service+ep
Patch done by Kamil Dudka, proposed upstream, waiting for reaction. You could
monitor it on the thread
This bug has caused a regression which renders tcsh unusable.
With the pushing of coreutils-6.10-28.fc9.i386, instances of tcsh now fail early
in their init scripting (before getting to the user ~/.tcshrc file) with the error:
Unknown colorls variable `ca'.
So at the moment all of my command-line work has been broken badly by this
Backing out to coreutils-6.10-27.fc9.i386 fixes the problem.
This does not happen with bash. Can one of the proponents of this bug please
try firing up tcsh to see what didn't get correspondingly updated somewhere in
the /etc area?
Thanks for your report.
This bug is already reported (including patch) against tcsh as #457342. There
is also a workaround - clearing LS_COLORS variable should help to start tcsh.
I am sorry for inconveniences.
