Ok - the necessary libraries are there.

Works since many months.

Never tried, but should work too.

Strange. Very strange (if that cheers you up).

What about a quite new ~/.mc

        mv .mc .mc-old


Some entries and files under ~/.mc have changed slightly.

What about the contents of "/etc/profile.d/mc.sh", what about "alias |  
grep mc"?
It/they should show

        . /usr/share/mc/bin/mc-wrapper.sh

And "which mc" should show nothing. "which -a mc" should show "/usr/bin/ 

Viele Gruesse!
