alias ll='ls -l --color=tty'


i can't seem to find where ll alias is getting called.
I have looked all over the place but can't find the script that calls it.
I have tried:
~/.bashrc
~/.bash_profile
/etc/profile
/etc/bashrc
/etc/rc.local
none of these have an entry for alias

it most be coming from somewhere else than users home directory because the ll alias command also works for root and i check its .bashrc and .bash_profile

where else could it be?

maybe you should tell what distribution you use, it could help.

maybe your .bashrc flie or else is calling some other files, you should maybe post your files here if you donn't understand bash scripting.

and if you just want to get rid of that alias, you can always :
unalias ll

sorry, i don't know fedora core 4.

you can add 'unalias ll' at the end of your .bashrc file, it should work.

I can't help you more with my poor competence
