Every time I fire up a terminal window, I get the following error message:

bash: exxport: command not found

I know I misspelled aa symlink somewhere, but I can't find it. Is there any way to locate the error?

which exxport

should show you what it's trying to run.

Thanks, found it right before hiding in my .bashrc file and fixed it, but your solution is appreciated – user7339 Aug 21 '09 at 3:09
How did that help? You already now that "exxport" doesn't exist? – innaM Aug 21 '09 at 8:44

Try looking at your .bashrc, .bash_login, or .bash_profile files. In one of them I assume the misspelled export can be found.
