« on: December 31, 2009, 01:17:22 pm »

toothandnail has built a new Mc package for VectorLinux 6.0.
   
      
   
Code: [Select]
mc: mc (GNU Midnight Commander)
mc:
mc: MC is a user shell with a text-mode full-screen interface.
mc: It can be run on the OS console, in xterm and other
mc: terminal emulators. It allows you to manage files while
mc: still having access to the command line. It is simple to
mc: use, and provides virtual filesystem support for compressed
mc: files including LZMA compression.
mc: License: GPL
mc: Authors: Andrej Borsenkow <borsenkow.msk@sni.de> & others
mc: Website: http://www.midnight-commander.org/
   
   After testing this package please stop back here and let us know how it works for you.

Works fine here (VL6.0 KDE-Classic).

Thanks for testing. I've discovered that there is a (new) bug in the handling of ~/.mc/panels.ini If one exists from an earlier installation, MC will use it, and use the path information stored in it. If there is no panels.ini, MC will create a 1 byte file with (suprise, suprise), no informaiton in it. From that point on, when MC is started, both panes will display the startup directory. It doesn't seem to make any difference whether 'autosave setup' is enabled or not. It will not save paths at all.

I've opened a ticket on the bug, but I've no idea when it will be sorted.

In the meantime, you can either modify an existing panels.ini to suit your preferences, or modify the sample below and copy it to ~/.mc:

Code: [Select]
[Dirs]
other_dir=/mnt
current_is_left=1

[New Left Panel]
display=listing
reverse=0
case_sensitive=1
sort_order=name
list_mode=full
user_format=half type name | size | perm
user_status0=half type name | size | perm
user_status1=half type name | size | perm
user_status2=half type name | size | perm
user_status3=half type name | size | perm
user_mini_status=0

exec_first=0

[New Right Panel]
display=listing
reverse=0
case_sensitive=1
sort_order=name
list_mode=full
user_format=half type name | size | perm
user_status0=half type name | size | perm
user_status1=half type name | size | perm
user_status2=half type name | size | perm
user_status3=half type name | size | perm
user_mini_status=0

exec_first=0

Editing other_dir= will ensure that the right hand pane will start in the directory you want it to start in.
