Re: hexedit install shell seems rudimentary

I didn't have /etc/profile so I copied /etc/default/etc/profile to

Aside from /etc/profile, I don't have any of the other files that
David mentions, but do have the profile.d directory. Here are the
permissions of all related files mentioned:

bash-4.1$ ls -l profile*
-rw-r-----  1 adrian None 6.9K Feb 18 11:14 profile

total 4.0K
-rw-r--r-- 1 adrian root 109 Jan 18 07:50 openssl.csh
-rw-r--r-- 1 adrian root  41 Jan 18 07:50
-rwxr-xr-x 1 adrian root  74 Jan 29 19:13 xinit.csh*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 adrian root  44 Jan 29 19:13*

 I did see that both base-files postinstall scripts in
/etc/postinstall/ were not executable:

bash-4.1$ ls -l base*
-rw-rw---- 1 adrian root 1.2K Feb 12 13:13
-rw-rw---- 1 adrian root  925 Feb 12 13:13

So I changed them to be:

bash-4.1$ ls -l base*
-rwxrwx--- 1 adrian root 1.2K Feb 12 13:13*
-rwxrwx--- 1 adrian root  925 Feb 12 13:13*

I ran setup again without installing anything --> no change to terminal
I ran setup again selecting to reinstall hexedit --> no change to terminal

I really appreciate your guys' help! Can't wait to find out what the issue is...
