    Question about RXVT

    I am using RHEL3, I am using QVWM be my default VM, and I use URXVT to my default terminal, but I can't show dircolor on it. using xterm it can show dircolor.
    I already set the eval `dircolor -b` in my .bashrc, but it still not show dircolor.
    when I login, and type "set", it show COLORS=/etc/DIR_COLORS, and LS_COLORS=. and I try to run "dircolor -b" in terminal, is show
    export LS_COLORS
    but when I using PUTTY to login, then it will have color on it. using command 'set', those COLORS and LS_COLORS are have values.
    Why?? Why using URXVT login can't show dircolor, and using PUTTY didn't show dircolor.

    putty creates a login shell with sources .bash_profile
    rxvt may be a mere shell which in that case woudl souce .bashrc
    so placing the variables in the appropriate files will help !
