#1037 closed defect (fixed)

Missing instruction in 'The Bash Shell Startup Files' BLFS page

Description

I needed to to do

chmod a+x /etc/profile.d/*.sh

before the bash startup scripts worked. I think a note to this effect should be added to the documentation at http://lfs.securewebservices.co.uk/blfs/view/stable/postlfs/profile.html

Note /etc/profile says

for script in /etc/profile.d/*.sh ; do

if [ -x $script ] ; then << !!!

. $script

fi

done
