When I "su -m" and login as root, all I get in the prompt is a % sign. My normal user shell is tcsh and the prompt looks like this: [EMAIL PROTECTED]/home/eric(29): but this is not kept when I su -m. How can I change this? Thanks, Eric
Seems a tad unusual. Don't know if I can help, but can you give me some info?
a. What is root's "shell" entry in /etc/passwd?
b. From whence do you set your "normal" prompt? /~/.cshrc?
If the machine is not used by others, a quick workaround might be to simply copy your .cshrc to /root/ and simply use "su". But it does seem a tad weird that "su -m" seems to be reading some other resource file...or else my understanding of "-m" is broken, which is entirely possible.
