system wide setting of .emacs/.vimrc


I just finished installing slackware 10.0 and everything works like a charm.
But I do have one little problem.

Where are the system .emacs .vimrc.

I want to add a few lines to each of them, but which files should I edit.
(It should be for all users.)

thanks in advance.
[edit]
ps. And if you know which xf86 config slackware is using.
pps. And If I want to make changes to my .bashrc where should I put the changes. like path class_path.
ppps. And last question. Do all the files that are marked executable in /ets/rc.d/*, actually run at boot time or do I net to add the name of my extra stuff somewhere else??

Thanks again.

i don't get it. in your personal .bashrc? if it is for everybody change /etc/profile. attention here if you use a login shell or not.

yes. you can put your stuff here. everything executable will run. there is a file already for your stuff "rc.local".

It seems like the globel .vimrc file is /usr/share/vim/vimrc

I'm still quite puzzled about the .emacs , but I'm more into vi so It doesn't really matter.
I only want emacs so I can run the jdee ide, hehe

What do you mean by attention concerning the login promt??

hi there,

it is a long history. take a look at
Code:
man bash
the user file can be also .bash_profile depending of your login setup. nothing to worry about. 90% of the users do not care about that.
most distro also helps you with the line
Code:
source .bash_profile
in the global definitions..

regards
