Re: bash profile not working

I want to set some environmental variables - I tried putting them in bash_profile (which works in RH) but it doesn't seem to work although when I manually type in the same lines at the command prompt it works (using Knoppix on HD). Any suggestions? thks
If you're setting these in an Xterm (or equivalent), they will only affect that shell, not other shells/applications not started from that shell.

Also, are you just setting them, or are you exporting them also (which is necessary)?
