Hi,

This problem has probably been asked in different ways at different times, but looking through the all posts, I could'nt seem to nail it down.

I have been trying to insert a number of shell aliases. I edited /etc/passwd to change the shell to bash, then created a .bashrc file which contained the aliases.

I rebooted, but it would'nt register the aliases, whether I insert them in .profile or .bashrc

If I issue the command alias d='ls' on the command line, then it works.

I may have missed something really obvious, as I have always used tcsh as my shell in the past.


Anyway, I can't seem to figure out the problem.

Any suggestions ?

Rgds
Neil.

I have the same problem as you! I want to set alias permanent like " alias ll=`ls -la`"

Where do I have to entry this data? I did the same entries like Neil but with no success too. Did someone get this problem solved?


Thanks,

Meanie,

Thanks for the pointer. It works on my SL-5600

Meanie,

thanks for your quick help :-) now it works!

Maybe you can help me with a similar problem? I use vim very often and the syntax highlighting is very smart. But everytime I start the shell I have to execute the command "export TERM=linux" to activate the syntax highlighting! I put this command to the .profile but with no success.

Do you have a idea how I get this working.


Thanks
climber

you have a /home/root/.profile? perhaps there? or maybe create a /home/zaurus/.bash_login, that way you can execute whatever during the login? also since your playing you can create a .bash_logout as well to execute scripts on logout, I use it for a script I wrote in python to sort/remove-duplicates in my .bash_history file. Also anyone know how to get the history to work while in the sh shell?
