Re: panel behaviour on rhel7

I found the solution to this.

With the newer versions of mc, there is a single option NOT enabled by default that caused the problem.  This is true in any linux distro as well since I tested with debian on a PI and it had the same problem.   If it can be enabled by default, that would be just perfect, is there any chance of this?

Options -> Panel Options -> Auto save panels setup

This looks like a new option with mc 4.8 thats why it always worked before that.  Is there any way we can have this changed back the way it was, so we don't have to save the setup on every host I ever use?

yes, I see where that is now, thanks.  The problem seems that the panels.ini file isn't being written to upon exit.  The only difference I can see is with older versions of Fedora saves the file (as the root user in my case) to: /root/.mc  However in newer ones it goes to: /root/.config/mc the rest is all the same.  I have to manually "save setup" is the only way to have it write to that file.

EL-6: mc-
F-21: mc-4.8.7-8.el7.x86_64

I verified the ini has auto_save_setup=1

I don't have another distro to test on, if I did I suppose that could rule out if its a bug or just something about the OS.

If you enable save on exit I think it remembers the last panels. or, check your bash aliases and stuff, sometimes mc has startup thing that forces home directory in startup panel. There's the -P option to save the last directory you were in.

Has anyone else noticed with RHEL 7 and later versions of fedora, the directory you were last in is lost in the split panel, the next time you start mc?
