I am confused between the files - .bash_profile & .bashrc
I am trying to put some customised alias and $PATH etc and am finding things
are different between a Konsole session and an SSH session.
What is the rationale for putting things into either file.
On related point, if I want soemthing to be defined for all users, is it
legit to create it to a file in the directory /etc/profile.d.
I have done this and it works but it appears tobe called twice (so if you
add to $PATH it happens twice :-( )
I am using Mandrake 9 if that is relevant
