Description niles 1999-08-08 21:57:57 UTC
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.

Comment 1 niles 1999-08-22 14:00:59 UTC
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?

Comment 2 Preston Brown 1999-08-23 15:32:59 UTC
do you have a ~/.history file?

Comment 3 niles 1999-08-24 01:45:59 UTC
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!
