http://www.unix.com – Hi All I am kind of confused, when to use Code: .bash_profile or Code: .profile I have just created a user on a test server, with: Code: useradd -u 103 -d /fretagi -m -s /bin/bash fretagi but now in its home dir I have: Code: -bash-3.2$ ls -al total 14 drwxr-xr-x  2 fretagi  other        512 Dec  5 15:54 . drwxr-xr-x  52 root    root        1536 Dec  5 15:54 .. -rw-r--r--  1 fretagi  other        144 Dec  5 15:54 .profile -rw-r--r--  1 fretagi  ot (HowTos)
