Midnight Commander hangs up console or xterm
*** The problem is solved. It concerns very peculiar configuration of the system, so you aren't probably interested in reading the entire thread ***
I use Slackware 12.1 but the same problem I noticed using two former versions of Slackware.
In my system there are two users: first and second. Both users was made using the same set of commands and both use similar .bashrc and .bash_profile files. They should be the same but aren't. As the first user I can start Midnight Commander and use all its functionalities. When I start Midnight Commander as the second user using mc command, the program hangs up console or xterm respectively. As the second user I need to start Midnight Commander using mc -u command disabling concurrent shell. The result isn't satisfactory, because in that mode Midnight Commander doesn't allow to use console or xterm.
What should I do to restore the possibility of using mc command for standard operation of Midnight Commander?
Have a nice day...
