RE: bash
Authored by: Anonymous on Mar 27, '01 02:35:35PM

Looks like it's working fine now. I wrote the following to ~/.profile

PATH=${PATH}:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/ucb:$HOME/bin
export PATH

instead of:

PATH=${PATH}:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/sbin/sbin:/usr/ucb:$HOME/bin
export PATH

I'm assuming that :/usr/sbin/sbin was a typo? I replaced it with :/sbin

And BTW, what's /usr/ucb? I don't see that in my filesystem.


Thanks for all the help!

Yikes, sorry! Been in SunOS land for too long. /usr/ucb is where all the good stuff like the old ps lives.

The sbin stuff was, indeed, a typo.

that didn't make sense, did it!?!?!

It's where the BSD (ucb = university of california at berkely) stuff lives on SunOS/Solaris. Obviously, on MacOS X, which is BSD, that's what you get anyway.

That makes a little more sense, I hope!
