Hi all, please advise as I can't find bashrc file in Tiny Core Linux.

I'm using ~/.ashrc.
Download a copy and keep it handy: Core book ;)

Did you load the bash extension?

I would appreciate if you could share how to use this?
I can't even find it in my TC

Please read documentation and spend time with wiki, particularly about basics like persistence, extensions and basic configuration, and also explore all included system tools to get more familiar with the environment.

Hi Adam
The files you seek are hidden. Try:
Code: [Select]
ls -la ~/.*rcThe filenames begin with a period which makes them hidden files.

Thanks again Rich, but there is No such file or directory
Code: [Select]
root@box:~# ls -la ~/.*rc
ls: /root/.*rc: No such file or directory
root@box:~#

Update:
Sorry  I was looking at the wrong directory

Code: [Select]
root@box:~# find / -name .*ashrc
/home/tc/.ashrc
/etc/skel/.ashrc
root@box:~#

Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ pwd
/home/tc
tc@box:~$ ls -la ~/.*rc
-rw-r--r--    1 tc       staff          476 Aug 12 08:53 /home/tc/.ashrc
tc@box:~$

Using "~/" as root is ambiguous.

I suggest using a file manager to get familiar with the system.

I’ve just found something new. By default, alias is working with tc id whiles doesn’t with root id. Please let me know how to load these alias setting in root as well.

Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ alias
ls='ls -p'
cp='cp -i'
c='clear'
df='df -h'
reboot='sudo reboot'
rm='rm -i'
mv='mv -i'
la='ls -la'
du='du -h'
d='dmenu_run &'
ce='cd /etc/sysconfig/tcedir'
i='ifconfig | grep dd'
ll='ls -l'
tc@box:~$

Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ sudo su
root@box:~# alias
root@box:~#

Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ ls -la
total 12
drwxrws---    3 tc       staff          120 Aug 12 06:29 ./
drwxrwxr-x    3 root     staff           60 Mar  4  2010 ../
-rw-rw-r--    1 tc       staff         2216 Aug 12 06:38 .ash_history
-rw-r--r--    1 tc       staff          517 Aug 12 05:46 .ashrc
drwxr-sr-x    3 tc       staff           60 Aug 12 06:29 .local/
-rw-rw-r--    1 tc       staff          920 May  5 21:57 .profile
tc@box:~$

Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ cat .ashrc
# ~/.ashrc: Executed by SHells.
#
. /etc/init.d/tc-functions
if [ -n "$DISPLAY" ]
then
        `which editor >/dev/null` && EDITOR=editor || EDITOR=vi
else
        EDITOR=vi
fi
export EDITOR

# Alias definitions.
#
alias df='df -h'
alias du='du -h'

alias ls='ls -p'
alias ll='ls -l'
alias la='ls -la'

alias i='ifconfig | grep dd'
alias c=clear
alias reboot='sudo reboot'

# Avoid errors... use -f to skip confirmation.
alias cp='cp -i'
alias mv='mv -i'
alias rm='rm -i'

alias d='dmenu_run &'
alias ce='cd /etc/sysconfig/tcedir'
tc@box:~$

Code: [Select]
root@box:~# cd ~
root@box:~# pwd
/root
root@box:~# ls -al
total 12
drwxrwxr-x    2 root     staff          100 Aug 12 06:33 .
drwxrwxr-x   17 root     staff          360 Dec 21  2012 ..
-rw-rw-r--    1 root     staff          248 Mar  4  2010 .Xdefaults
-rw-------    1 root     root            83 Aug 12 06:35 .ash_history
-rw-rw-r--    1 root     staff          278 Aug 20  2012 .profile
root@box:~#

I’ve also found that there is no .ashrc file in root. Should I create one to fix this issue?
