cron-process PATH settings?

Post by Va » Thu, 23 Jun 1994 07:28:39

When I get mail from cron(1), it specifies an:
X-Cron-Env: <PATH=/etc:....> line

where is it getting this path?  I want to let a /usr/local/bin
override the /usr/bin directory so that I can add new versions of progs
without disturbing the original source/bin tree.

1. need general help with setting paths & man paths for apps

Hello, basically what I know so far (which is limited ) is that I put in the
path to installed apps in my path through editing the /etc/default/login

also when i installed gcc I added the installed app to my path, but after
compiling there was a share folder and a man folder, I take it the man
folder consists of the man pages so how do I add them to my path as in the
man path also when installing apps I noticed some references to enviroment
variables such as LD_LIBRARY_PATH.... How do I set these variables to there
corresponding applications (permanantly).

Any advice on the enviroment variables or paths and what they link to and
when(e.g I have been putting the .bin directorys in my path in mt
/etc/default/login script) whould be appreciated.
