comment Bash doesn't read .bashrc unless manually started
Thank you. I assumed it didn't matter since /bin/sh pointed to /bin/bash. I suppose this issue stemmed from not explicitly assigning the shell to /bin/bash when I originally created the user account.

@Gilles Does this mean that the kernel doesn't ship with any of these init variants you mentioned? And as a result, the distribution is responsible for making sure an init executable is available where the kernel would look (by boot parameter or defaults)?

Is it safe to assume that /etc/inittab is distribution-specific and contains the scripts responsible for initialization then?
