I am having problems under RH 9.0 with the PS1 prompt preventing KDE or
Gnome loading. This problem did not occur in RH7.3.
In my .bashrc file, I set the PS1 prompt using a line
This allows me to see the directory I am currently using, e.g., as
[/usr/local]$ if I am in /usr/local.
When this line is in the .bashrc file and I try to load KDE (or Gnome),
X loads as a black screen with a white X for a mouse cursor but neither
KDE nor Gnome load.
If I comment out the line, then either of them loads without problems.
Once they load, I can set the cursor from the command line in a terminal
This seems to make no sense: why would a Prompt prevent KDE from loading?
What do I need to do to correct the problem if I want to use this prompt?
