    bash and /etc/inputrc.


    I have a boot disk which I want to slightly modify.

    It is just like any other boot disk. and contains the minimal commands , libraries and configuration files that are needed for a rescue.

    I just wanted to make bash more friendly to use and not display the wierd "~" whenever I press DEL or PGDWN or PGUP.

    So any methods of doing this ????

    I did info bash and went to readline support in bash and added a /etc/inputrc file from my FC2 distro as mentioned there. But it is not helpful.

    So, kindly do provide some ways of overcomming this problem.

    Thankx in advance.

    Not sure about FC2 but usually inputrc is defined to be "emacs mode" so your bash also need to be in "emacs mode" for input synatx.

    Try doing "set -o emacs" in a terminal and test if the keys work.
