Hard to say why it isn't working
Authored by: porkchop_d_clown on Apr 03, '02 11:44:33PM

Without logging into your mac. But, to double check:

1. You created the folder "/Users/<YOU>/Library/init/tcsh".
2. You put the new script files in that folder.
3. One script is called "aliases.mine" and the other is called "rc.mine".

If you have already created modified the standard /etc/ scripts it's possible that you've changed things so that the Library scripts aren't getting run anymore. But I can't really tell without logging into your machine.

Hard to say why it isn't working

All was done just as you said.

In the course of my alias fiddling I followed the instructions in /usr/share/init/tsch/README

which included:

echo "source /usr/share/init/tcsh/rc" > ~/.tcshrc
echo "source /usr/share/init/tcsh/login" > ~/.login
echo "source /usr/share/init/tcsh/logout" > ~/.logout

To do this system-wide, do the same instead to /etc/csh.cshrc, /etc/csh.login, and /etc/csh.logout.

-------

if things are broken, are these general unix things, or just darwin specific 'cos I've got unix engineers around me at work?

shame there isn't a trusted way to let people 'fiddle' with your machine on line (at a price of course), a kind of doctors surgery if you like.

<p>Hmmm... By default, my iBook already had the system-wide defaults installed, so I didn't have to do the echo thing. What happens if you delete or rename .tcshrc, .login and .logout?</p>
