Description michael.waite 1999-06-17 19:20:37 UTC
We have found that when ".bashrc" is executed by the bash
profile, the execute bit is not set correctly.
bash_profile runs .bashrc
It is apparently set to 644 and it should be 744
We had to modify /etc/skel to make the fix for new users and
go and physically make the changes to the current system

The only annoyence with this is that if you monitor the
system logs, which we do, you will notice that every cotton
user who attempts to log onto the network (nis in our case)
generates and "acc1" error failure. This can temd to fill up
your log files and is a general annoyance.

On our systems here at Red Hat we have not noticed this type of thing
happening and we use NIS on Red Hat 6.0. Also there .bashrc should
work fine with the permissions set to 644.
