I can't get .bashrc to load on this machine... it's SUZE linux 10. I'm a bit frustrated because this seems very basic, create the file and it loads when you open a new shell connection. With the below setup I'm not seeing my changes take affect... any suggestions? I've looked over at least 8-10 threads on StackOverflow and ServerFault and haven't found a working solution.
if [ -f ~/.bashrc ]; then . ~/.bashrc fi
