Subject: [gentoo-user] Heads-up; bash now uses "readline" USE flag
Date: Sat, 08 Sep 2012 00:44:24
1 I updated world yesterday, and discovered that bash functionality was
2 severly degraded on my machine. No up-arrow to scroll through history,
3 no tab-completion, etc, etc. A bit of Google searching turned up the
4 fact that bash no-longer uses an internal "readline" library, but now
5 depends on the "readline" USE flag for this functionality. If you don't
6 have "readline" globally enabled set...
8 app-shells/bash readline
10 package.use.
