Ticket #28882 (closed defect: duplicate)
MacPorts installer only modifies profile of current user
|Reported by:||1handle@…||Owned by:||macports-tickets@…|
I've two accounts on the computer. The port of bash was successful from the account the port command was issued from, but this port had no impact on the second account. The port created .profile in the account that worked; that file appends two required paths to $PATH. In contrast, no similar file was created for the second account.
To recover, I updated the existing .bash_profile in the second adding the two paths. The two paths are: /opt/local/bin and /opt/local/sbin.
There was no indication neither during, nor at the conclusion of the port that there was a problem or even a concern. Further, I suspect this is a product of being my first attempt to install a port and had nothing to do with bash itself.
