I have RH8 and have been trying to set up a few aliases. Spefically, my .bashrc file currently reads:

# .bashrc

# User specific aliases and functions
alias la='ls -aF --color'
alias ls='ls -F --color'
alias ll='ls -alF --color'

# Source global definitions
if [ -f /etc/bashrc ]; then
. /etc/bashrc
I have tried running "source .bashrc" but it doesn't change my aliases:

jdbrown@kitten jdbrown]$ alias
alias l.='ls -d .* --color=tty'
alias la='ls -aF --color'
alias ll='ls -l --color=tty'
alias ls='ls --color=tty'
alias vi='vim'
alias which='alias | /usr/bin/which --tty-only --read-alias --show-dot --show-tilde'
In other words, there seem to be some settings for ls and ll somewhere for which I am not able to override. The /etc/profile and /etc/bashrc files don't contain any alias commands. I do boot into xwindows, so I don't know if that affects anything. Any suggestions?
