I changed redhat's default shell from bash to tcsh, but tcsh doesn't read .cshrc file everytime I login. I have to type source .cshrc everytime I login, and it's very unconfiniance. Please tell me a tip so that tcsh read .cshrc file everytime I login.

tcsh does not read .cshrc if .tcshrc exists. Check if .tcshrc exists and remove it, or rename .cshrc to .tcshrc.

Do like vx said!!
Rename your .cshrc to .tcshrc and everything should work fine.

That happens a lot with the root account, I havn't had that problem with a normal account.
i.e.
mv .cshrc .tcshrc
