Hi Forum

After logging as oracle user on Linux Box, the environment variables ( eg- Oracle_home, path, oracle_base) dont get their values as mentioned in .bash_profile.

Every time, I have to manually execute profie to reset variables as:
. ./.bash_profile

The contents of my .bash_profile are as below:

# Get the aliases and functions
if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then
. ~/.bashrc

# User specific environment and startup programs


#export PATH

ORACLE_BASE=/home/oracle/app/oracle; export ORACLE_BASE
ORACLE_HOME=/home/oracle/app/oracle/product/11.1.0/db_1; export ORACLE_HOME ORACLE_SID=orcl; export ORACLE_SID
PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin:/bin:/home/oracle/app/oracle/product/11.1.0/db_1/bin:; export PATH
#umask 022

Please let me know if I need to add some entry somewhere.

Making changes in bashrc solved my problem.

It's all about interactive vs login shells which is a pretty abstruse
subject as far as OS is concerned.
