bash - login

Hi!

After update of bash I get a message when I login:

-bash: [:[u@h: binary operator expected

In the .bashrc I have:

alias ls='ls --color=auto'
PS1='u@h $ '

test -n "$DISPLAY" && export TERM=xterm-color

Thanks,

Mitja

Re: bash - login

Mine is almost idetical to yours except that the second line reads: PS1='[u@h W]$ '
Notice the W there. Perhaps you can edit your.bashrc to read the same, see if it helps.

Re: bash - login

Yes, I do. Looks just like the one in your .bashrc.
The sole difference was that line.

Yesterday was update of bash 3.1.2 and after that I have a ''problem''. I had same .bashrc as long as I have a Linux smile.

Re: bash - login

it's a problem with the bash-completion package, afaik.  They're aware of it and fixing it.

Re: bash - login

1. mcedit /etc/profile.d/bash_completion.sh
2. find line 8
3. find $PS1 in [ ]
4. write " " around the $PS1

or type this:
sed -i 's#$PS1#"$PS1"#' /etc/profile.d/bash_completion.sh
Only once, it runs without any message so don't run it once again.
