Description Ian Macdonald 2003-06-03 01:13:33 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030531 Description of problem: zsh, as shipped, does not source /etc/profile. Consequently, files in /etc/profile.d aren't sourced either. This is because zsh only sources /etc/profile when run in sh or ksh compatibility mode. By default, it does not run in either of these modes. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. chsh your shell to /bin/zsh 2. open a log-in shell 3. notice that /etc/profile has had no effect Actual Results: Neither /etc/profile nor anything in /etc/profile.d/* sourced. Expected Results: Sourcing /etc/profile and stuff in /etc/profile.d/* is desirable. Additional info: A workaround is to add 'emulate sh' to /etc/zshrc, but that's not necessarily desirable, since it changes some of zsh's default settings.
Comment 1 Ian Macdonald 2003-06-03 03:53:57 UTC
I gave a workaround in my bug report, but the fix is equally obvious. Add the following line to /etc/zshrc: . /etc/profile
Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2003-06-03 05:03:15 UTC
Try adding the contents of "/etc/skel/.zshrc" to your .zshrc file. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 88457 ***
