I want to set some permanent aliases for the bash shell.
This would be for all users on my box, which would be my regular user acct and root.
I created the file /etc/profile.local and added some lines like:
alias cdcpp='cd /development/C++'
alias cddoc='cd /document'
but the aliases don't get defined.
I've even restarted the box to be certain.
>>The easiest way would be to put them in ... for all users /etc/bashrc
My bash.bashrc file says:
# PLEASE DO NOT CHANGE /etc/bash.bashrc There are chances that your changes
# will be lost during system upgrades. Instead use /etc/bash.bashrc.local
>>does the following lines show up in your /etc/profile:
>># And now let's see if there is a local profile
>>test -s /etc/profile.local && . /etc/profile.local
permissions are at least read.
/etc/bash.bashrc.local works (for both root and regular user)
but for some reason /etc/profile.local doesn't, maybe its a SuSE thing
anyway, good enough.
thanks for your help
