Re: Bash 2.00 error in xterm
You are correct, sir!
Momentary loss of brain wave activity. It never worked under 1.14
because I just recently got a working X server. Hence I never would have
known whether it worked or not. All my VC logins *were* login
Thanks to your pointers, the O'Reilly bash book, and my own /etc/profile
which I'd hacked once before I got the prompt to give me what I wanted..,
userid@machinename on one line and working directory on another line.
For those interested this does what I wanted: PS1='<\u@\h>\n<`pwd`>\$'
Thanks joost (and one other helpful responder-sorry deleted your mail
before engaging my brain).
