mkultra@mkultra [ ~ ] $ cat /etc/bash/bashrc

just after the color dirs stuff, two of the ps1 commands are funk and resulting in no pwd. it just gives the directory name not showing that it is a subdirectory of a sub directory. this fixed it for me.


Code:

   if [[ ${EUID} == 0 ]] ; then
      PS1='\[\e[01;31m\]\h\[\e[01;31m\] [ \[\e[0m\]\w\[\e[1;31m\] ] \$\[\033[0m\] '
   else
      PS1='\[\e[01;32m\]\u@\h\[\e[01;32m\] [ \[\e[0m\]\w\[\e[1;32m\] ] \$\[\033[0m\] '
   fi

   alias ls='ls --color=auto'
   alias grep='grep --colour=auto'
   alias egrep='egrep --colour=auto'
   alias fgrep='fgrep --colour=auto'


second one is for colorless terminals.

root /var/www/localhost shows as root localhost with \W & root /var/www/localhost with \w i see this as env pollution.
