Hi,

if I have the following history:
1 ifconfig
2 tail /xyz
3 cvs up
4 cvs up -dP

On a Suse box I type "cvs "<pageup>, I get "cvs up -dP"
On a CentOs 5.5 box I get "ifconfig"

Does anyone know how to reconfigure the CentOs Box to behave like the SuSe-Box with the bash history? Which settings need to be changed? Which additional Infos do you need to Track this down?

Greetings Jürgen

I think the comments here will answer that (check the one for .inputrc also)

Copied /etc/inputrc from the SuSE-Box to the CentOS-Box and now have a similiar key behaviour an both systems.
