bashrc's locations

If there is more than one bashrc files, each will be sourced before the ebuild is executed in the following order:

  • /etc/portage/bashrc - Global bashrc file which applied to all packages


  • /etc/portage/env/${CATEGORY}/${PN}
  • /etc/portage/env/${CATEGORY}/${PN}:${SLOT}
  • /etc/portage/env/${CATEGORY}/${P}
  • /etc/portage/env/${CATEGORY}/${PF}

Usefulness of bashrc

With bashrc you will be able to:

  • Set custom variables per package, like CFLAGS of FEATURES
  • Execute code in selected ebuild stages
