OpenSUSE :: Bash Aliases For Root - Where They Are Defined
Sep 26, 2010
Output of my #alias command looks just as normal as one would expect:
alias +='pushd .'
alias ..='cd ..'
alias ...='cd ../..' .....
And still whenever I (as root) type in bash
which would be short for
i get output of the command
So where aliases for root overwritten? Usually I would expect .bashrc in the /root directory. Or at least .alias file. But there none of those in my current /root. So, my question is where root user gets it's aliases from? This concerns only root user. Normal user has .bashrc and I made up my own aliases in .alias and that's works jut fine. And yes I could make .bashrc file in the /root and .aliases where I would define my own things.
Defining tcsh aliases through a .aliases file has worked perfectly for me for years and years using cygwin and older versions of mandriva. I am encountering very annoying and mysterious problems when attempting to do the same thing with a .aliases file in a fedora 64-bit VM. Strangely, if I define aliases in the file, they won't work, but if I do so on the command line, then they will.
Here's a simple example: Suppose I define an alias for "ls" in the file: alias ls '/bin/ls' Then source the file. This happens: me: ls : Command not found. me: alias ls /bin/ls me: /bin/ls file1 file2 file3 etc. me: unalias ls me: ls file1 file2 file3 etc. me: alias ls '/bin/ls' me: ls file1 file2 file3 etc.
A second example: if I place either of these lines in my .aliases file: alias d '/bin/ls -alF !:1' alias d '/bin/ls -alF !*'and source the alias file, this happens:/ me: d Bad ! arg selector. However, if I define the alias on the command line: / me: alias d '/bin/ls -alF !*'then the alias behaves correctly:/ me: dtotal 376 drwxr-xr-x. 10 r r 4096 Apr 14 16:05 ./ drwxrwxr-x. 6 r r 4096 Feb 21 16:15 ../ drwxr-xr-x. 3 r r 4096 Apr 14 16:05 bin.v2/ -rwxr-xr-x. 1 r r 193872 Apr 14 15:35 bjam* -rw-r--r--. 1 r r 52804 Apr 14 17:20 bjam.my.log drwxr-xr-x. 77 r r 4096 Nov 17 09:49 boost/ -rw-r--r--. 1 r r 989 Nov 17 04:51 boost.css
So I checked the /etc/bash.bashrc file and it doesn't have the if [ -f ~/.bash_aliases ]; then . ~/.bash_aliases fi
I expected it to. So I checked the The /usr/share/base-files, and there it is. Problem is, it isn't part of the system wide bash, or is it? How do I activate the bash_aliases in Lucid Lynx? Quick un-related question. Is ./ = /.??
I would like to create some aliases for bash shell. On other Unix/Linux machines I have done this using the alias command like this: alias rm rm -i
When I type that into a terminal on Ubuntu, it looks like alias is not installed. I get this:
bash: alias: rm: not found bash: alias: rm: not found bash: alias: -i: not found
I tried adding the alias to .bashrc instead, but then I get the same error message every time I start terminal. Just for fun I tried apt-get install alias, just to see what would happen, and it installed something called libperl-alias instead, and alias still doesn't work.
How can I get aliases working as root? Here is my Slackware 13.1's /etc/profile file followed by my *Slackware 11's* /etc/profile file [as a comparison]. My Slackware 11's root aliases work in addition to my username ones *without* needing a separate .bashrc in my home dir. In S13.1 I have created a .bashrc for my username and it works fine, but I want those same aliases operating when I'm root, and cannot for the life of me figure how to achieve it.
S13.1 /etc/profile: # /etc/profile: This file contains system-wide defaults used by # all Bourne (and related) shells. # Set the values for some environment variables: export MINICOM="-c on" export MANPATH=/usr/local/man:/usr/man export HOSTNAME="`cat /etc/HOSTNAME`" export LESSOPEN="|lesspipe.sh %s" export LESS="-M" # If the user doesn't have a .inputrc, use the one in /etc.....
I've recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 64bit Desktop onto my 640GB hard drive. I used Wubi to download and install it onto a 100GB drive partitioned out from my 640GB hard. After I reboot and log into Ubuntu, it says that Roof File is Not Defined. The only thing I can do is to force my computer to shut down as so i did. After that I went to the demo mode of Ubuntu 10.04 as I can't do anything on the Normal Mode.
ive been recently experiencing some problems with my ubuntu studio 9.10 setup, with the filesystem failing to mount. after deciding to try a new hard drive and cable, as well as clean install ubuntu, fedora and now mint, im still finding no filesystem.im using a live cd created for mint (like it ). having clicked install to hard drive, all is well until the partition manager, where all the boxes are greyed out. clicking forward produces a box saying "no root filesystem defined". i see there are a few on here from a few years back and having read through them, cannot find a fix for myself.
i installed an old hdd that i had laying around to my new desktop PC SO THAT I COULD USE IT SPECIFICALLY FOR UBUNTU. I FORMATTED IT THEN WENT TO RUN THE UBUNTU SET UP DISK.BUT I GOT THE MESSAGE "NO ROOT SYSTEM DEFINED" WHAT DO I NEED D
I am on mac os x and whenever I make aliases in my apache config file to point to folders outside of main web document root folder, I get access forbidden. I have chmod -R 777 the whole destination directory (to test it) and still no go. Access forbidden. I have also tried pointing directly to [URL].
I have been using Ubuntu 9.10 Desktop version for around 1 month then i stoped using after installing windows 7, as I knew that there were the 10.04 version coming. So when it was released i went to torrent download the file and burned it on a cd. After that i insert the cd and use the wubi installer in there as i want to install them side by side. so after installing ubuntu i restarted the system and got into it. After a few minutes it appeared this error message "Not root file system is defined. Please correct this from the partitioning menu." So i was expecting it to be downloading problems. I went on to ubuntu website requested for a CD and it came today. So i inserted the cd did the same thing again.
Classic partition problem apparently. What do I do? the 11.04 wubi doesn't give a lot of installation options, so i just selected C drive, and gave it 10GB of space. instilled it, and when it goes to the desktop menu, that pop up appears saying No root file system is defined. Please correct this from the partitioning menu
I'm trying to install 11.04 and get the error warning in the title. It says "Please correct this from the partitioning menu."How do I do that?I don't see any options for that.Puppy will already boot from that device and has grub installed.
im trying to prepare my partitions for fresh installation. The partition manager didnt list anything with an error message that said:Quote:No root file system is defined. Please correct this from the partitioning menu?This is what Gparted displays Quote:
When I tried to install 10.10 'side by side' with 10.04 and OpenArtist for triple booting I get the messageQuote:No root file system is defined. Please correct this from the partitioning menu.I don't have the screen in front of me now but what5 does it want me to do and how do I do it?
I am trying to install Linux Mint 10 on a newly formatted 40gb hard drive. I have not been able to get the the install program to see my hard drive. The program seems to work well off of the CD. I have checked the md5 sum and it is a good copy of the program. It will be the only operating system on a Athlon64 3200, PC Chips M861g mb combo. I have also tried Ubuntu with similar results.
When I get to installation step "Allocate drive space" I get this message, "No root file system is defined. correct this from the partitioning menu." What is the source of this error and what do I need to do to correct it? I don't see a partition menu other than a choice of using the whole drive or a partition? Below are the choices that I have made. Specify partitions manually (advanced) Allocate drive space Choice are device (/dev/sda4) Type ((ext3) size) Mount Point (no choices offered) Size (42088 mb) used (670 mb) boot looder is sda Windows 7 ext3 42088 MB I am installing Ubuntu 10.1 on a seperate partition. Windows 7 is on another partition. The machine is an ASUS A52F Laptop
if this is an error that has already been solved, but I am running Windows 7, and when I finish installing Wubi in Windows, it asks me to reboot. I select Ubuntu and it gives me the error: "No root file system is defined. Please correct this list from the partition menu." I can't get past this error.
i have a M1730 with 2 HD in RAID 0. Windows 7 64bit installed. I tried to install Ubuntu 10.10 with WUBI, all ok the installation in Windows. Restarted the system I have 2 multiboot options with the new Ubuntu... it starts but in graphic mode it tries to finish the installation and stops with an error message like that: "root filesystem not defined...".The problem is the raid0 of my disks or other?
