No hostname with zsh (and yes, I read the news)

Hi... for maybe 2 days now, i dont have any hostname in zsh.

I created a file /etc/locale.conf with the contents for LANG and LC_MESSAGES. (en_US.UTF-8) in my case. But still it doesnt work.

As soon as i change shell to bash, its working again
It doesnt even need a logout:

[carnager@freebox ~]$ echo $HOSTNAME
freebox
[carnager@freebox ~]$ zsh

deal with: death.

carnager@freebox ~ 
> echo $HOSTNAME
 
carnager@freebox ~

And yes: the inetutils package is also installed.

He hoped and prayed that there wasn't an afterlife. Then he realized there was a contradiction involved here and merely hoped that there wasn't an afterlife.

Re: No hostname with zsh (and yes, I read the news)

I can reproduce the same problem on MacOS 10.7.2 with zsh 4.3.11.

bl1nk at metaverse in ~ 
$ echo $HOSTNAME


bl1nk at metaverse in ~ 
$ bash
bash-3.2$ echo $HOSTNAME
metaverse.fritz.box

What gives the hostname command ?

[Iggy ~]% echo $HOSTNAME

[Iggy ~]% hostname
Iggy
[Iggy ~]% echo $0
zsh

bash exports the HOSTNAME variable as a feature of the shell. ZSH does not. There's nothing wrong here.

ok... then i will have to open another thread, because i thought this is related to another issue, where ssh uses up all my memory in seconds. and this only happens when i use zsh as my shell...
