Source command not found

Post by helidagemo » 2019/08/06 15:48:43


I just got CentOS 6.10 minimal image installed, and ran into an issue as,
[sleo@localhost ~]$ source ~/.bashrc
source: command not found
Below is the sh I was running,
[sleo@localhost ~]$ ls -l `which sh`
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 4 Jul 29 21:55 /bin/sh -> bash
But if I su as root, it can run well.

Any suggestion would be appreciated:)

bash behaves differently depending on whether it's invoked as bash or sh.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!
