I am going insane. I have been trying to get my bash shell set for my lfs system. No matter what I do I can't seem to get the results I want. I am trying to add this path to my path /home/shane. below is what I have in my ~/.bashrc
if [ -f "/etc/bashrc" ] ; then
PATH=$PATH:/home/shane ; export PATH
It seems to have no effect. It does not add /home/shane to my path.
when I add this line to my ~/.bashrc in my gentoo install it reacts like I think it should: It adds the path /home/shane to my path.
Why is it behaving this way?
it seems none of my variables are working (if I place them in .bashrc)
