diff set of env setting?
Posted on 2000-02-28
I don't understand the following.
I am using the Bourne shell. As the shell path was set to on my machine to /usr/bin/sh I find that I have problem compiling the src of application on my HP-UX (for example zip). I find it very troublesome to rename the shell path from all the related files from /bin/sh. Is there a work around?
After having compiled and installed the program on my machine. I don't have problem executing it when I telnet to the server. I found that that is because the env setting was taken from my local path .profile
However, when I use xwin32 rexec (xterm) to log to the same server. I found that the environment set on my .profile was not taken in. I could not execute the program that I install in /usr/bin/local When I execute echo $PATH, what I got is on;t just a very short path. Not the one that I define in my .profile
How can I get xwin32 to take in the env set on my .profile
