Half of the defalt shell prompt is missing
I have just bought a new monitor. It's a Samsung, SyncMaster 940B.
I have Fedora and Slackware installed. In Slackware and Fedora half the default shell or (PS1 variable) is missing. eg:
[HTML]t@server1 root]# [/HTML] or
The monitor is running at the correct resolution in Slackware and webpages look fine, it's just the shell prompt is not showing properly in Slackware and Fedora.
Can someone help me please, to fix this up?
