Bug in tcsh-6.04???

Post by The Cyba » Fri, 23 Jul 1993 23:57:22



I just upgraded tcsh from 6.03 to 6.04 and I'm running Linux p19.  I had a
directory /bin/tcsh/ where v6.03 resided.  I renamed the directory from
/bin/tcsh/ to /bin/tsch-6.03/.  Then I created a directory /bin/tcsh-6.04/
for the new tcsh, and then did a 'ln -s /bin/tcsh-6.04/ /bin/tcsh/'.
Everything works fine, except my prompt used to display the machine name
(sauron), but now it displays it as "unknown".  X programs such as xload
report the hostname properly, why isn't tcsh?

I have compiled tcsh 6.04 on sun4's under both SunOS4.1.3 and SunOS5.1, on
sun3's, and under linux (0.99pl10) and have not had the problem you describe.

Looking at the source code, tcsh calls getenv("HOST") inside the code that
expands the prompt. So your problem is probably that you (somehow??) do not
have the HOST envariable set.

I solved the problem...I just upgraded my kernel to 0.99pl11 (not the ALPHA
version, but the one on sunsite.unc.edu in /pub/Linux/Incoming/).
