How do I make sure ssh sources
.bashrc on login without tty?
I have a Mac (10.6.8) that I'm using for various UNIX-y tasks like hosting git repositories. I have remote login enabled via the System Preferences "Sharing" pane. When I
ssh into the machine,
~/.profile, which I have set up to source my
~/.bashrc file and set up my MacPorts path. The problem is that when I run
ssh without a
tty, like this:
ssh myhost echo \$PATH
Or run a
git command that essentially uses
ssh in the same way:
git clone ssh://myhost/~/code/myrepo.git
~/.profile file is never sourced, so my
$PATH variable is missing
/opt/local (where MacPorts has installed
git). I am aware that:
- I can configure
giton my local machine to use
/opt/local/bin/git-*on my remote machine
- I wouldn't have this problem if I was forcing a
But I don't want to do either of those. I want my remote machine to source my
~/.profile file regardless of whether or not I'm logging in w/ a tty.
How do I make that dream a reality?
Also: I checked the behavior on a couple Linux machines (Debian and Fedora), and both systems seem to source the
~/.bashrc file on login regardless of whether it is a
tty. I was under the impression that BSD and Linux both use the same OpenSSH and bash implementations, so it seems like the difference in behavior might come from differences in
/etc config files?
