Hi Friends,

I am invoking bash as non-login shell i.e. using execvp() from my
application, but when the bash returns prompt the defualt directory is /dev.
I want $HOME should be my defualt directory after login to bash.

I have used "-rcfile" option to read the /etc/bashrc file forcefully and in
/etc/bashrc I have added a command "cd $HOME" this is working for super
users i.e. uid=0 and gid=0. 

But for general users it is not working even after changing the file
permissions of /etc/bashrc. It is not even reading the ~/.bashrc
~/.bash_profile files.

Please let me know how to fix this problem as soon as possible.

Thank you in advance.
