bash root@101/udp


Hello,

I am running centos 5, I was working on getting vsftp up and running. I made a mistake with trying to restart the server via /etc/services. I changed the permissions to the etc dir so I could ./services which I now know I was in the wrong location and should not have changed the permissons. My issue from this is in the bash at the command line [root@101/udp fred], I don't know what changed it to @101/udp. I tried to look at all bashrc, .bashrc, .bash_profile, I could not see anything. When I am sitting at the server its not listed as @101/udp only when I connect via ssh. Any help to resolve this would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Keith

Can you give the response for:
#echo $PS1
when connected via SSH?
Are you inheriting the environment variables?
# env
As you wrote, they are inherited from /etc/profile, $HOME/.bash_profile and $HOME/.bashrc
As you are aware of some wrong permissions you specified, did you correct them exactly as they were before?

I see it listed next to the HOSTNAME, why would that have been changed this way?

Thanks again

OK, I'm confused, I've never used Centos myself, but on none
of the distro's I've had my hands on in the past (including
RH, which Centos supposedly mimics) /etc/services was a script-
file, but rather just a text-file that holds mappings from
port to name .... how do you "run" this?

Oh ... heh. I see the "error of your ways", I guess. There
should be a lot of error messages when the box boots, and
by happenstance the line with the hostname "works", it sets
the name to exactly that, 101/udp. Remove the execute bit
from services, please, it's NOT a script.



Cheers,
Tink

Thanks Tink

I don't even want to admit what I did, it will just show how green I am I had the right thoughts but I was in the wrong place, I guess I should stop when I am ahead of the game and lacking sleep!!

Thanks again,

Keith
