Hi,

How about the other point I mentioned in post #15 (permissions of /etc/inputrc)??

Another thing that comes to mind: Did you create the /etc/profile.d/readline.sh file as mentioned here? (halfway down the page).

BTW: Most of the files mentioned in The Bash Shell Startup Files are needed for a smooth bash experience.

Hope this helps.

hmm that sort of helped but now it wraps to the second line, pushes the prompt off the left side of the screen in the process, and then scrolls on into infinity on the second line

Hi,

I get the feeling that not everything bash related is (correctly?) installed (yet?). Which chapters did you do and which (parts of) chapters did you skip? Most of BLFS chapter 3 should be done already.

Don't focus on X at the moment. Log out and log in into a normal console and check if all the files needed are actually present, have the correct content and permissions. I'm especially referring to the The Bash Shell Startup Files chapter, but you need to check the others too.

For example:
- Is horizontal-scroll-mode still set to off,
- Are /etc/profile and /etc/bashrc present and correct,
- etc.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

Quote:

Did you actually check the content or assumed all was well after the copy-paste........

How did you copy and paste from an xterminal at that stage? X wasn't installed yet, you only have the CLI terminal to work with at that time. Or did you redo this chapter just now? As I already mentioned in post #19: Don't focus on X at the moment. Do all your editing, checking and debugging from the CLI. X is just an extra layer of uncertainty at the moment and it might not even work correctly due to the bash environment that seems to be incomplete and/or incorrect.

I hope it is the way you communicate, but I get the feeling that you haven't been checking much yourself. You only give short (half) answers to questions asked. For example: It seemed that you did not have the /etc/profile.d/readline.sh in place (I cannot be sure because this was your answer: hmm that sort of helped). Was it present but not correct, was it missing are any of the other files missing in /etc/profile.d?

What do you mean by this:
Quote:

If I read that correctly it says: I did that part already and that is what got me in trouble in the first place. But that cannot be correct, we did find one error already......

Please elaborate a bit more and try to be as detailed as possible.

Not to much to go on, but hope's it helps anyway!
