http://www.linuxquestions.org – How can I get aliases working as root? Here is my Slackware 13.1's /etc/profile file followed by my *Slackware 11's* /etc/profile file [as a comparison]. My Slackware 11's root aliases work in addition to my username ones *without* needing a separate .bashrc in my home dir. In S13.1 I have created a .bashrc for my username and it works fine, but I want those same aliases operating when I'm root, and cannot for the life of me figure how to achieve it. Why??? S13.1 /etc/profile: # /etc/profile: This file contains system-wide defaults used by # all Bourne (and related) shells. (HowTos)
