        From the manual page:

        When an interactive shell that is not  a  login  shell  is
        started,  bash reads and executes commands from ~/.bashrc,
        if that file exists.

        However, running bash -login produces

        bash: .bashrc: No such file or directory

        if there is no .bashrc.

        From an account without a .bashrc, run "bash -login"
