Description Horst H. von Brand 2008-06-20 13:38:00 EDT
Description of problem:
On tty1, bash doesn't consider arrow keys at all. I guess this is bash's fault,
but that is just a guess (perhaps tty handling? in any case, under od(1) the
keys give input)

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

How reproducible:
Always (also on x86_64)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to a tty, log in
2. Type something at bash, try to edit with the arrow keys
Actual results:
Nop reaction

Expected results:
Cursor moves, etc

Additional info:
csh (tcsh-6.15-4.fc9.i386) handles <- just fine. On gnome-terminal the arrow
keys work OKin bash.
Comment 1 Roman Rakus 2008-06-24 08:24:26 EDT
I have just done fresh install of rawhide. And I can't reproduce it. And I think
it has nothing to do with bash.
