I am using ubuntu-10.04 and bash. I want to go into root and have it change my prompt to underlined red characters to reflect that I am in root. At the bash prompt, if I type:
$ sudo bash
then I go into root, however my prompt doesn't change. In
/root/.bashrc I have:
RED="\[\033[0;31m\]" UNDERLINE="\[\033[4m\]" DEFAULT="\[\033[0m\]" export PS1=$RED$UNDERLINE'\u@\h:\w\$'$DEFAULT' '
however this file isn't being read. In order for it to be read I have to enter at the prompt:
# . /root/.bashrc
which I don't want to have to do. How do I set it up so that when I go into root,
/root/.bashrc runs automatically?
