Hi,
 
I am using FreeBSD 6.2 without X/Xorg. My shell is bash and my keyboard layout 
is US-ISO.
 
I am facing 2 problems on the console :
 
1) My backspace key works fine, but the Del and Delete keys also do a backspace 
instead of a forward delete. How do I change this ? My keyboard is a basic 
101/102 keyboard.
 
2) Bash simply does not remember my commands in the right order. Most of the 
commands I type in a login session are forgotten in the next session. Moving 
the Up and Down arrow keys navigates a mangled and incomplete command history.
 
I am attaching the contents of my .bash_profile, .bashrc and .inputrc below.

 
#.bash_profile :
if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
 source ~/.bashrc
fi
#end-of-file

 
#.bashrc :
export HISTFILE="~/.bash_history"
export HISTFILESIZE=1000
shopt -s cmdhist
shopt -s histappend
#end-of-file
 

#.inputrc :
"\e[1~": beginning-of-line
"\e[4~": end-of-line
"\e[3~": delete-char #should be a forward delete unless I am mistaken
"\eOd": backward-word #ctrl-leftarrow
"\eOc": forward-word #ctrl-rightarrow
set completion-query-items 20
set meta-flag on
set input-meta on
set convert-meta off
set output-meta on
#end-of-file

 
If anyone can help me out, I shall be really grateful.
 
Thanks in advance,
Manish Jain
