If you stick something like
[elfyn@ellixia libxslt-1.0.27-1]$ cat ~/.rc/aliases
# ~/.rc/aliases: Shell Aliases
# This file contains Bash shell aliases for programs

# Directory listings
alias ls='/bin/ls --color=tty'
alias la='/bin/ls -a --color=tty'
alias ll='/bin/ls -l --color=tty'
alias lal='/bin/ls -al --color=tty'
this in your `~/.bash_profile' file (or add them globaly in a script in
