I'm new to FreeBSD, and to bash. I'm running FreeBSD 5.0, and added bash from the cd during install. There are .profile and .shrc files in my home directory; .profile references .shrc with ENV=$HOME/.shrc; export ENV. There are several uncommented alias lines in the .shrc file, but none of them work. From what I've read, bash should read .profile and .shrc, but just in case, I tried copying them to .bash_profile and .bashrc, changing ENV to =$HOME/.bashrc, and renaming the original files, but the aliases still don't work. Aliases are formatted: alias ll='ls -laFo'; entering that at the prompt and it works fine. Seems like bash isn't reading the rc file. Obviously, I'm missing something; any suggestions appreciated. Thanks.
