Did you check the .bash_profile and .bashrc files in your $HOME
directory? RedHat creates these each time adduser us run by copying the
contents of /etc/skel to the new users' home directories.
Your ~/.bashrc file is executed after /etc/profile and /etc/bashrc, so
it's the best place to define custom aliases. Just start with `unalias
-a` to clear the existing aliases, and add the ones you want.

Subject: [GLLUG] aliases
I am new to RH distro and have a basic question.
After login, when I type the command 'alias' I get the following output.
alias l.='ls -d .* --color=tty'
alias ll='ls -l --color=tty'
alias ls='ls --color=tty'
alias which='alias | /usr/bin/which --tty-only --read-alias
I would like to modify them a little bit to my taste. I tried to look
for where these aliases were defined but cannot find them.
The /etc/profile and /etc/bashrc do not have any of the above aliases
defined. I searched thru all the files in /etc and did not
find any there either.
Where are these aliases defined? Are these compiled into the 'bash'?
PS - RH distro does impress me now. Few years ago (1997) it did not.
Thanks Mike for the copy of RH.
