Description Bastien Nocera 2004-11-30 10:59:10 UTC
zsh is one of the only shells we ship that doesn't source /etc/profile.d.

Here's a patch for zsh-4.0.7-1:
--- /etc/zprofile.old   2004-11-30 10:55:40.000000000 +0000

Comment 1 Colin Walters 2005-01-03 20:51:47 UTC
Looks to me like all we need to do is source /etc/profile; this itself
sources /etc/profile.d/*, no?

Comment 2 Bastien Nocera 2005-01-04 09:47:48 UTC
# tail -n 7 /etc/profile
for i in /etc/profile.d/*.sh ; do
    if [ -r "$i" ]; then
        . $i

Looks like it should be enough indeed.

Comment 3 Colin Walters 2005-01-05 02:17:21 UTC
Actually, the default /etc/skel/.zshrc already sources /etc/profile.d

Did this not work for the customer?

Comment 4 Bastien Nocera 2005-01-05 09:44:33 UTC
The customer didn't have a ~/.zshrc. I can see a discrepancy in that
/etc/profile.d is sourced by the system-wide configuration file when
using bash (/etc/profile) but by the user-wide config file for zsh.
Any way to change this?
