I got the same results as email@example.com. Now I'm still running
just woody and will probably upgrade the week of 13 June 2005. I
guess I had better save a bunch of stuff.
I'm confused by your command ll. It wont run on bash for me. Is this
an akias for ls -l? Also don't see and /dev in
your output. Would you explain?
gayle@Gcomm:~$ cd /

From my home directory, I just cd'ed to the root directory. Since dev
is itself a directory, I can cd to it as I did in the previous example
or use the local path as I did in the second example. As you guessed,
'll' is indeed an alias that uses the 'ls' command in the '.bashrc' file
that should be in your user home directory.
I'm sending my .bashrc file in a separate message for the benefit of
those who prefer to skip it.
