using aliases after doing su?
I have a bunch of aliases in a file called /etc/.aliases.
They're called by /etc/.bashrc which is in turn called by each accounts own .bash_profile.
My question is, how do I make them usable when I've done su logged in as an ordinary user?
A bit vague, yes, but you do get my point, right? Here's an example:
anv@Nyarlathotep /anv $ l
drwx--x--x 33 anv users 1216 2004-08-15 14:36 ./
drwxr-xr-x 5 root root 96 2004-07-20 13:08 ../
"l" is an alias for "ls -la --color"
anv@Nyarlathotep /anv $ su
root@Nyarlathotep /anv $ l
bash: l: command not found
root@Nyarlathotep /anv $
Nothing happens. How do I call the .aliases file when I'm temporarily su?
