I tried to include the alias cmds also in the /etc/profile file, but they are not yet recognized after the boot.
As a test, I also tried to declare a variable end export it globally, to see if it was working.
I edited /etc/profile to this:
Code:
# cat profile                                                                                                           
alias ciccio1='/mnt/0/a'                                                                                                
MARK=0008                                                                                                               
ENV=/etc/shrc                                                                                                           
HOSTNAME=`hostname`                                                                                                     
                                                                                                                        
export ENV HOSTNAME MARK
After the boot, that variable is not yet listed in export -p, nor it is echoed by "echo $MARK" .
I tried to include this variable "MARK" also in the path.sh file attached in my previous post:
Code:
# cat path.sh                                                                                                           
MARK=008                                                                                                                
PATH=/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin                                                                                       
[ $(id -u) -eq 0 ] && PATH="/usr/local/sbin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:$PATH"                                                      
export PATH MARK
but it is still not listed in the exported variables (obviously PATH variable is listed!)
This is what is listed in the exported variable list:
Code:
# export -p                                                                                                             
export HOME='/'                                                                                                         
export PATH='/usr/local/sbin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin'                                                             
export PREVLEVEL='N'                                                                                                    
export PWD='/'                                                                                                          
export RUNLEVEL='3'                                                                                                     
export TERM='linux'
I'm starting to run out of ideas...
