Bug in IDE connection


Recommended Posts

I just discovered a bug (well, unexpected behaviour at least!) when connecting to a Power PMAC over SSH. If I change the PS1 environment var via the .bashrc profile (for example, to simplify the prompt), the IDE can no longer connect to the Power PMAC!


It is obviously looking for a particular response from the PPMAC on connection, and when it doesn't get a particular response it won't connect.


Is there a way around this, or should I submit a feature request???

Your assumption about IDE waiting for a particular response as a part of communication establishment process is correct. At the moment we are not supporting any other prompt, but because we will be adding some other features to IDE and Power PMAC, such as supporting DHCP and Hostname, we will be updating the IDE such that it would be less restrictive.


At the moment, the best solution is to keep the PS1 setting in the bash.bashrc same as set by Delta Tau :


IPPROMPT='/sbin/ifconfig | sed '/Bcast/!d' | awk '{print $2}' | awk '{print $2}'  FS=":"'
PS1='${debian_chroot:+($debian_chroot)}\u@$IPPROMPT:\w\$ '
