Description of problem: When pressing del key under mysql-client, a ~ is inserted, when pressing Ctrl+right, ";5C" is inserted, etc.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): mysql Ver 14.12 Distrib 5.0.51a , for redhat-linux-gnu (i386) using readline 5.0
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open any terminal
2. log in a mysql session
3. press 'DEL' Key
Actual results: some strin~g
Expected results: some strin
For me, mysql reacts to DEL and control-arrow the same way that the bash shell does, so I don't think it's broken. This seems more like a problem with terminal configuration --- have you checked your "stty -a" settings?
This problem occurs only in mysql, I have no problems in the bash shell. Here are my settings :
[grpar@nicolede ~]$ stty -a
speed 38400 baud; rows 34; columns 145; line = 0;
intr = ^C; quit = ^\; erase = ^?; kill = ^U; eof = ^D; eol = <undef>; eol2 = <undef>; swtch = <undef>; start = ^Q; stop = ^S; susp = ^Z;
rprnt = ^R; werase = ^W; lnext = ^V; flush = ^O; min = 1; time = 0;

[ pokes around... ] Oh, I was testing the wrong version of mysql. This seems to be fixed in the 5.0.67 version that's shipped with F-10. Can you update?
The problem is, I'm using Fedora 9, so I'm afraid I can't update, unless this version is in a testing repository for F9... I'll tell you tomorrow, the problem is at work.
There is no mysql update here : http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/updates/testing/9/i386.newkey/ :-S
What am I supposed to do?
5.0.77 should appear in the testing repository shortly.
Fine, I'll check regularly with this command :
yum update mysql --enablerepo=updates-testing-newkey
Works like a charm!
