Changes to bashrc in UP6 important?

Postby cb474 on Tue Jan 15, 2013 4:01 am

I just did the upgrade ot UP6 and replaced my old bashrc with the new one in the update. But this disabled the color highlighting functionality in the terminal. So I switched back to the old bashrc to get this functionality.

I noticed the new bashrc is much simpler than the old one, though, and didn't really understand all the differences. Is it a problem to continue to use the old bashrc? Would it be better to just edit the new bashrc to have the color functions I want? (I would have already done this if I could have figured it out, but I couldn't tell which lines I needed.)

Not in my experience.
