Good day everyone, I need help.

When I try to find some file and move it via console (/bin/bash), for example, I type: mv /etc and push TAB.

The result is:

Code:
# mv /etc


Completion system pushes extra space after /etc. Then, to continue tying path, I need to remove the last space, type / and 1st letter of the next directory and push TAB again.

What do I need to change/fix to avoid this extra doubtful feature?

Earlier, it worked fine.

Please, help.

It behaves correctly on my machiine... Are you using a bashrc ?

Also, are you sure that /etc is actually a directory and not like a broken symlink or something (just trying to cover all bases here...)

No-no, it is a directory.

But, if I want to open some file in emacs, for example, the completion works correctly, because another rules are working here, emacs-specific.

So, I need to understand: maybe I must disable or enable something to avoid this or to rollback older behavour.

emacs completion, vi completion, and bash tab completion are all different and independent completion mechanisms.
The only thing I can think of is you have a special setting specifying /etc as a completion word... but that's something special to your machine as far as I know... Are all accounts affected by this?

So, I'm sure, that I break bash tab completion somehow. For another account it is also a problem.

I've disabled all completions:

Code:
# eselect bashcomp list | grep '*'
#


But it is still presents.

Code:
emerge -aC app-shells/bash-completion app-shells/gentoo-bashcomp


solved the problem! :)

but, I don't understand, how bash-completion can works incorrect.

For those readers joining in, emerge -C means emerge --unmerge and dv1983 unmerged bash-completion and gentoo-bashcomp.

It must have added some files some place that changed the operation of bash's default (and desired) internal completion.

Good to know.
