The Colors Are Driving Me Nuts!!!


I have a Redhat Enterprise Linux Box. I want to do something simple - turn off the bleeding color! Dont know how?

sometime I type 'ls -lrt' and the whole screen turns red and I cant see a thing. Other times... same command and then everything starts flashing.

It is driving me crazy. Any help would be great.


Thanks,


Greg.

I guess man dircolors is a good starting point.

colors from ls...

or just remove the default alias for ls. In one of your dot-files in your home is an alias command that is aliasing ls to include the with-color args... remove or adjust that alias.

Hardware problem?

Don't you think it could be your monitor which is at fault?
