--------------------------------------------------------------------- Red Hat, Inc. Bug Fix Advisory

Synopsis: gnuplot Advisory ID: RHBA-2000:021-01 Issue date: 2000-05-08 Updated on: 2000-05-08 Product: Red Hat Linux Keywords: editing, completion, arrows, history, readline Cross references: N/A ---------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Topic:

gnuplot in Red Hat Linux 6.2 has problems with editing at the command line.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 6.2 - i386 alpha sparc

3. Problem description:

gnuplot was inadvertently built without readline support for Red Hat Linux 6.2. The readline library provides command line completion for filenames, shell-style editing, and command history. The problem has been corrected by properly linking gnuplot against the readline library.

4. Solution:

For each RPM for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filename]

where filename is the name of the RPM.

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla for more info):
