alias, chmod


alias:
Why doesn't linux remember my aliases (I tried it with fedora and slack):
I have to run alias cd..="cd .." everytime I login if I want to use it.
Same thing with chmod:
If I want to watch a movie from cd or dvd as user, I have to run "sudo chmod 755 /dev/hdc" every time I login.

Put the alias command in a file named .bashrc (include the dot). If there isn't one, make one. Same with the chmod. Log out and log in for it to have effect.

Yes, it should be in home, the full path to it is:

Code:
/home/name/.bashrc
Peace,
