OS: Open Suse 11.4 64 bit running inside Virtualbox.
I am following the link
to make bash behave like cmd.
It worked well in Arch Linux.
Recently I felt like I want to put this in Open Suse 11.4 and put the changes
to .inputrc and restarted the box (permissions of .inputrc = 755)
set completion-ignore-case on
# Ignore case when doing completion
set mark-directories on
# Completed dir names have a slash appended
set visible-stats on
# List ls -F for completion
The TAB completion DID NOT work.
Tried a lot but no luck.
I then moved the above section to /etc/inputrc and restarted the machine
and VIOLA the tab completion works.
But in my office env, I dont have the luxury of modifying the /etc/inputrc and only .inputrc will help.
Any ideas/suggestion would help.
