When I installed Slackware 10.0 I upgraded the kernel to 2.6.7 as soon as I installed. And I've been trying for the longest to get the ~/.bashrc file to work. I hear it's a bad idea to use root, so I've made my own account and started using it...
I had no bash files in my home directory besides, bash_history, until I created .bashrc. I hear that this file is supposed to be called everytime it's ran or a new shell is opened. The only way I can get this is when I call it myself, and even then all that happens is "Executed appears". I want the path to be added to my $PATH.
Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong? Here is a copy of my .bashrc
