RE: .bash_profile does not work
When I telnet into Debian from another machine, I get the $PATH
variables which my .bash_profile states.
However, when I log into it directly, via XDM, and then turn on a
bash shell, I get the /etc/profile $PATH. . Moreover, if I log on from
another machine using - not telnet - but rather VNC, then I also get
the /etc/profile $PATH. (After the VNC login, I went back again to
telnet, where, once again, I got the .bash_profile $PATH)
So this has something to do with XWindows.
