Hi All, long time reader, first time poster, so go easy!
I've been using Fedora for some years, though never as my main OS. A few months ago, my pc spilled it's innards all over the floor, so with a new (second hand!) pc, I decided to use Fedora as my main OS. As such, I'm slowly learning things that you don't normally get to see when using it as a headless server/test machine.
Right now, I have an issue with dual monitors, but that's not the reason for this post. Having been playing with nvidia-settings, nvidia-xconfig and the nvidia drivers (now removed courtesy of yum), I now have a strange situation.
Basically, I have everything echo'ed back to screen when in the console. This includes passwords when logging in and using su. Now, I understand that it might have something, however convoluted, to do with display drivers (thinking along the lines of ssh/telnet echo...), but find it a little hard to believe.
And to top it all off, I now have lost tab-completion and "up" for previous commands!! The shell is bash (ps -p $$), and I haven't updated anything else when installing/uninstalling the nvidia stuff, which has me confused.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
