I am trying to get some aliases to stick. I am running SuSE 9.1 pro. My default shell is bash. I don't have a .bashrc in my home directory. I also heard that there should be a profile.local in the /etc directory but I don't have one of those either.
Also what type of syntax would I write the entries in? is just alias aliasname=command or do I need to do some scripting.
