I installed gentoo 1.4 and asked this on the [rather quiet] mailing list
without response and my local LUG list and nobody could help... the bash 
profile works fine from console login or ssh but xterm gives a nice 
'sh-2.04a$' prompt.

bash --login
xterm -ls
xterm -e /bin/bash --login
bash --rcfile /etc/profile

all don't work from within X. Only ssh localhost will give me a nice term!

I copied /etc/skel/.bash* to my $HOME and this doesn't work. I copied the 
same from a debian sarge box and nothing happens either.

Running gnome2, ibook2, gentoo 1.4
bash-2.05a$ bash --version
GNU bash, version 2.05a.0(1)-release (powerpc-unknown-linux-gnu)

anyone know whats wrong?

have fun,
