Thanks for pointing this out. Which recommendation did you follow? The one
in the NEWS file? Did you try exactly this?

$ 'eval `dircolors | sed s/hl=[^:]*:/hl=:/`

Which shell are you using?

Yes, because your file ~/rc/dir_colors does not contain any color definition 
for hard link. Try to add the following line to that file, it should solve 
your problem:


> present address@hidden:~/rc/bash >dircolors ~/rc/dir_colors |sed
> s/hl=[^:]*:/hl=:/

Then you actually no more need sed, next command should be sufficient:

$ eval `dircolors ~/rc/dir_colors`

I think we should improve documentation a bit. It is not only about hard 
links. Some people may also want to disable file capabilities highlighting, 
etc. Pádraig, what do you think?
