Hi

I'm a Linux newbie, and have 2 questions.

I am running RH Linux 7.2 (kernel 2.4.7-10) with KDE 2.2-11.

1. Are there any good virus scanners for RH Linux available?

2. I want to create an alias for a command. I have been able to do this on a user-by-user basis in the .bashrc file, but I have not been able to set it system-wide so that it applies to all users. I have also tried /root/.bashrc but this only seemed to affect the root user.

Thanks for your help

Sebastian

2) Try /etc/profile :)
3) That depends of your loginmanager. Is it xdm, kdm, gdm ?

You would be better served by the experts if you submitted these questions separately.  Hard to divvy up the points this way and this will also be more confusing and chatty with some experts responding to only some of the questions.

moto-moi: 2) Thanks, putting it in /etc/profile seems to do the trick.

3) My login manager is kdm I believe - its the dialog that opens at K|Preferences|System|Login Manager.

dkloes: I was going to do that, but I figured they were quite minor questions, easily solved by an expert.

It appears dkloes was correct - asking four questions in one wasn't such a good idea! I had thought they were rather easy for an expert, which is why I asked them in one question.

So I'll split the points between moto-moi and Techno Mage, and ask the other two questions separately (and edit this question).
