The configuration files use shell environment variables to call the shell, editor, mail reader, html viewer, compress and virtual memory status utility. That means that if you set GNUIT_SHELL, GNUIT_EDITOR, GNUIT_RMAIL, GNUIT_BROWSER, or GNUIT_VMSTAT to some value, that value will be used instead of the default one. The defaults are:
GNUIT_SHELL='/bin/sh' GNUIT_EDITOR='vi' GNUIT_RMAIL='emacs -f rmail' GNUIT_PAGER='more GNUIT_VMSTAT='free' GNUIT_BROWSER='lynx'
configure script is passed ‘--enable-debian’, some of
the defaults are changed as follows:
GNUIT_EDITOR='sensible-editor' GNUIT_PAGER='sensible-pager' GNUIT_BROWSER='sensible-browser'
If SHELL is defined, GNUIT_SHELL will be set to that value. If PAGER is defined, GNUIT_PAGER will be set to that value. If EDITOR is defined, GNUIT_EDITOR will be set to that value. If you want to change the default settings, put something like this into your ‘.profile’:
export GNUIT_SHELL='/usr/local/bin/bash' export GNUIT_EDITOR='emacs' export GNUIT_RMAIL='elm' export GNUIT_PAGER='less' export GNUIT_VMSTAT='vmstat' export GNUIT_BROWSER='netscape'
These variables used to be prefixed with GIT_ (e.g. GIT_PAGER). The old names are still accepted for backwards compatibility.
