Description Milan Kerslager 1999-05-20 01:00:04 UTC
If we use bash, scripts in /etc/profile.d are interpretted
during login procedure. But for tcsh (or csh) every time
shell is invoked.

rename /etc/csh.cshrc to /etc/csh.login

Nothing other is affected by this change. Just both shells
should do job the same way.

Comment 1 Milan Kerslager 1999-05-21 09:25:59 UTC
We have various problems with software that uses this to set-up shell
environment when somebody uses tcsh or csh especially when it need to
something print out during login procedure. This bug cause for
example that users can't use scp. I reported already this bug for
RH5.2 but not via Bugzilla system.

This could be a hairy one - renaming a config file and making sure we
transport the changes over...

Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 1999-09-02 17:46:59 UTC
Fixed in setup-2.0.5-1. Please note that modified /etc/csh.cshrc
should be saved by rpm as /etc/csh.cshrc.rpmsave and that those
modifications should be put into /etc/csh.login now.
