Re: How to make custom alias in ~.bash_profile work on F10 86_64

You do not have to logout.  You just got to 'source ~/.bash_profile' to make it work.

I am not using export after my aliases and it works.

If I remember correctly, you also need to export the alias. See if
adding "export l" to .bash_profile helps.
