why is ~/.ashrc executed twice?
« on: December 22, 2011, 05:39:32 AM »
Hi!

I use microcore (now core4.2-rc2), and I wonder, why at login ~/.ashrc is executed twice? Who calls it for a second time?

thank you!

Hi MJZ
Why do think it's executing twice?

.ashrc will run on every shell process. Perhaps your commands would be better served in .profile (once per login) or .xsession (upon start of X), or even /opt/bootlocal.sh (once per bootup backgrounded) or /opt/bootsync.sh ( once per bootup not backgrounded).

thanks. ~/.profile would be the place to be, and I actually wanted it first time.

but oddly ~/.profile gets always overwritten with a default file at boot time.

You have to run backup after modifying .profile or you will get the old one at next boot.

as I want to have no system backup at all (and avoid the "filetool" structure for an embedded system),
can I also go with the boot options "home=sdaX" and "norestore"??
Or do those two options interfere with each other?

thanks!!

Yes, a persistent home is ok too.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.
