TAB Auto Completion
 
I will be taking a test on a SUSE build that doesn't have TAB Auto Completion turned on. I'm assuming this is a setting I can switch on somewhere? bashrc? sysctl? Any ideas?

Thanks..

bash-completion package needs to be installed.

if you do not have a copy on your media try http://www.caliban.org/bash/

That would be lame if they dont have it installed. I won't have access to the internet from the computer I'm on..

can't you ask the sysadmin to allow you to give them the binary so they can install it?

Its in a certification testing environment. I found out the reason had to do nothing w/ .inputrc, readline, etc. Its because they used the NX client to present me w/ a virtual desktop and TAB was mapped to the local Windows machine and not to the virtual NX desktop.

I couldn't find out how to map TAB to another key combination so I just did without it. Any idea?

Very Strange.... I took my CLP test from Novell about a month ago, and I had my choice between using the NX client or a java based test environment. I specifically used the NX client one because of the tab auto-complete feature. Not sure I woulda survived without it. Anyway, no ideas on why it wouldn't have worked using the NX client. Hopefully you passed so you don't have to take it again without that feature :)

I acutally ran out of time. I passed my first 3 sections but got to the section on backups and the time was up. I spent too much time working w/ friggin ACLs at the start when I should have just skipped it and moved on.

I thought the NX client worked w/ the JVM. We did have to download a JVM in order for it to work.
