To make this system-wide add it to /etc/profile as root:
Code:
echo -e 'if [ "$SHELL" = "/bin/bash" ]\nthen\nshopt -s checkwinsize\nfi' >> /etc/profile



Yes, that did it!!!

Thanks tomchuk, this really annoyed the heck out of me!

Shouldn't someone put this in the standard /etc/profile in sys-apps/baselayout?
It took me quite a while to find this fix....

Thx,

Iwan.

Excellent, this had been annoying me for a long time :D 8)

Speaking of annoying, sometimes I get corrupted shell fonts after cat-ing a device driver. Everything turns into miscellaneous symbols. There is a way to restore things (I read this in a post a long while back) but I cannot for the life of me find this old post anymore or remember what was the solution. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Yes, you just have to type this command in the garbled term:

Code:
reset


You have to trust your own typing skills, because you can't see what you type. :wink:

My new favorite is CDPATH

Code:
export CDPATH=".:~:/:/usr/portage:/my/src/dir/"


Then, from anywhere:
Code:

$ cd etc
/etc
$ cd .ssh
~/.ssh
$ cd app-shells
/usr/portage/app-shells


It even does completion: cd <TAB>

Wow CDPATH sure is mighty hefty, but confusing too... I am still dubbing whether I shall use it or not... this may introduce some serious human error increase... no more blindly directory-tab-completing ;)

Hi,i follow the step,
the bash can check the window size,
but the line still wraps in one line.
even if i start shell without run any app.

But if you happen to use a Linux installation where there's no reset command... Then you can try this:

Code:
echo -ne "\017"

Read the Linux Gazette issue 5, issue 6 and issue 7 to get a wider picture.
