Default weird history problem

after install freebsd 7.0, I think I immediately install port tcshrc which give alot of tcsh function to my personal id but not root.
afterthat I found out my id do not record history after I log off.
I found unset histfile in .tcshrc.set, but remove it won't solve it, neither if
you do set histfile=.history
history function in my root id seems to be functioning normally.

I solved the issue by rename all .tcshrc, login to id and logoff again.

that's all! guys.

Roots shell by default is csh, not sure if it supports every thing that the installed tcsh does. Last I looked /bin/csh was essentially tcsh made to behave in traditional csh ways.

Assuming it will use tcsh behaviors, you probably could just copy your users setup to roots.

/bin/tcsh is a hard link to /bin/csh, it doesn't matter which one you use.

You can use /etc/csh.cshrc for system-wide settings.
UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.
