Hi - I'm having trouble setting up RXVT on WinXP.
I've got the following shortcut set up to launch RXVT:
C:\viper\cygwin\bin\rxvt.exe -sl 1500 -fn "Lucida Console-12" -bg black -fg yellow -sr -e bash --rcfile "/cygdrive/c/viper/.bashrc"
My $HOME directory is set to the following, as seen in the RXVT:
ptomsic:bin> echo $HOME
and as seen in the DOS prompt:
When I launch the shortcut for RXVT, all is good but it opens in "/usr/bin"
If i type `cd ~` then I lose my $PATH, or so it would seem. If i `echo $PATH` it looks like it's in tact, but i can't do simple things, like `ls` or `which ping` or `who`
Why would it be okay when I first launch the RXVT shortcut, but then simply changing to my $HOME directory causes everything to start misbehaving?
thanks - Paul
