View Full Version : [CLOSED] Bug in PATH setting in Mac OS X installer

16 Jun 2011, 11:34 PM
The Mac OS X installer copies the PATH settings to ~/.profile. However, on my system this didn't have any effect, since there is a ~/.bash_profile which takes precedence over ~/.profile. This should be considered by the installer.

This was reported before:

For a complete overview of bash config files (there are more variations) that should be considered in the installer, see:

This is a bug in InstallBuilder which was filed by us, and just recently resolved. We don't manage profile settings directly. Our next release of the tools will place it into .bash_profile, .bashrc, or .profile, in the correct order. This is especially an issue on Leopard, but it will be no problem going forward.

Thanks for reporting this though. For now, you may have figured out to just copy/paste the exports ;)

Yes, I kind of figured that out ;-)

Thanks for replying.
