I'm new to Fedora 15 and Linux. I've stumbled upon a problem while installing Oracle XE; I can't set environment variables or do anything else - any change I make won't stick.
I'm using the terminal:
$ su --login Password: *******
As an example: if I run
history -c then log out, after logging in again the bash history is still there(same happens with environment variables,they are not there, none of them).
My user has this
What should I change or what am I missing?
EDIT: I don't know if it's important but it's a VMware virtual machine(on a Windows XP system)
