View Full Version : no .bashrc / .bash_profile with clean F13 install

Hi,
was wondering, is there any reason why the a clean F13 does not put any .bash* files in the user home directory? Sort of annyoing to read bash-4.1$ in the terminal as opposed to the good old [user@host dir]$, though it's clearly trivial to add them manually. Should I file a bug-report maybe?
Cheers

Odd.

Take a look if they're in the skel.


ls -al /etc/skel

Hmm,


ls -al /etc/skel/
total 40
drwxr-xr-x. 4 root root 4096 May 25 00:35 .
drwxr-xr-x. 128 root root 12288 Jun 1 22:07 ..
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 18 May 21 19:32 .bash_logout
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 176 May 21 19:32 .bash_profile
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 124 May 21 19:32 .bashrc
drwxr-xr-x. 2 root root 4096 Mar 31 23:57 .gnome2
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 121 May 5 14:48 .kshrc
drwxr-xr-x. 4 root root 4096 Feb 26 03:37 .mozilla


Btw it happened consistently on four different machines I installed F13 on.

May be worth a bug report then.

Just bring them over to your home directory for now.


cp /etc/skel/.bash* ~

My fresh F13 i386-PAE KDE4 installation (from DVD) suddenly started displaying bash instead of user@hostname AFTER PERFORMING A KERNEL UPDATE (Linux 2.6.33.6-147.fc13.i686.PAE i686)).

This answer fixed the problem right up -- thank you kindly!
