Hi,

I wonder if anybody has suggestions for the default profiles (/etc/profile, /etc/bash.bashrc) at GSI.
I intend to rework these as I know they are far from perfect.

What about prompt and/or directory highlighting? Anybody who dislikes it? Does it work with windows SSH clients?
Some common aliases?

The current GSI setup has a strong difference between "Login"- and normal shells - which is apparently anachronistic. But it seems that there's no such thing as /etc/bash.bashrc for ksh, and that limits the possibilities to provide proper system defaults for non-login ksh sessions.
Users of tcsh basically solely help themselves it seems

I didn't even figure out if ypchsh is properly working or if the changed setting is overwritten with the old settings from somewhere else.

At last I wonder if for newly created accounts some sensible defaults for ~/.bashrc aso. could be given, e.g. to include common GSI login scripts like rootlogin.

I'd be glad to hear your suggestions,
Christopher

Hi,
I would appreciate an update of those scripts.

Testing with
export PS1="\[\033[1m\]$PS1\[\033[0m\] " #bold
I see no problems on windows "SSH secure shell"

Concerning alias, I propose something for this ls version
ls --color=never

Last point, "common GSI login scripts"
I opt against this, i.e. rootlogin, because not everybody uses it.
Those who have to use it can include it in their own "profile".
