Shells & Tab complete.


I don't know if I'm going daft or what, but I don't get anything when I type the history command in a terminal. Also my tab complete does not work and if I press up for the last command I don't get anything either.

Is this because of the shell root is using or is it something different....?

Tab complete and command recalls are so much easier than having to retype everything.....

# history
history: not found

# ^[[A (what ya get if you press the up arrow)

Short answer:
# bash
Alternatively, you can use ksh, but it is less easy with completion features.
