The following have to be executed before running an ant build on our servers. It loads the library path:

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH

How do I set this automatically such that it gets executed each time we open up a new putty session?

I tried to put this in the .profile file but it still does not work. We're using Solaris.

Good to know that
/etc/profile is the configuration that is read before any user's .profile is getting loaded. This file /etc/profile is read once the user have logged in to the system.

>/etc/profile is the configuration that is read before any user's .profile is getting loaded.
Not if one is using the csh, IIRC

HTH & YMMV

I think it's bash. How do I confirm that? Sorry I'm new to Unix.

Hi,

to find out which shell you are in you could use a "who am i" and "finger" :

# who am i
root        pts/1       Apr 23 09:31     ([hostname])
# finger root
Login name: root
Directory: /                            Shell: /usr/bin/ksh
On since Apr 23 09:31:49 on pts/1
    from [hostname]
No Plan.
