Can anyone tell me the sequence of files that are read during an initial
bootup into a bash shell. Here's how I think it works;
1) Kernel loads
2) /etc/inittab is read to find default level and files to read
3) /etc/rc.d files are read. This gets you to the login prompt
4) /etc/profile is read
5) .bash_profile in the home directory is read
Are there files I'm missing?
Here is why I ask. I can't figure out where my PATH and aliases are
being set. And it doesn't seem like my .bash_profile is being read. And
when I 'su -' to another user, my path gets reset even if that user
doesn't have a .bash_profile in the home directory.
I am running Slackware3.0 with kernel 1.2.13.
Thanks for the help,
