Question Question about Bash startup scripts in BLFS 6


I am in the process of installing BLFS 6.0 over LFS 6.0.

Whenever I log in as a regular user or root, the following errors show up (as /etc/profile is processed):

- /etc/profile/tinker-term.sh not a directory
- /etc/profile/xterm-titlebars.sh not a directory.

I've double checked the contents of these scripts and found no typos. I've double-checked the section of /etc/profile that runs the scripts in the /etc/profile.d directory. I've double checked the permissions on these scripts and they match the permissions on each of the other scripts in the profile.d directory. All the other *.sh scripts in the /etc/profile.d directory run just fine except these two.

I'm stumped.

Anyone have any ideas?

Lightbulb figured it out.

It turns out the problem was not in /etc/profile.

I forgot that /etc/bashrc sourced the tinker-term and xterm-titlebars scripts. I had missed the ".d" in the path in the source commands.

Correcting the mis-typed paths in bashrc fixed the problem.
