Email address

Hey Nl6720,

You've disabled email from other users, but I'd like to send you a private message. If interested, would you mind contacting me on alad <at> archlinux <dot> info (address in ArchWiki:Administrators)?

Clarification for: The content seems questionable too, but I know nothing about these frameworks

It's a problem I met, for which I couldn't find a solution with googling, so I had to retreat to asking at IRC. In short, it's that the default Archlinux config shipped somewhere in /etc/ overwrites variables for runtime, i.e. one can't even overwrite them manually. I thought it would be useful to many others. Probably, it may cause problems not only with "oh-my-zsh", but I decided to put info in that paragraph because I'm not sure if there is a better place.

And sorry for html formatting, markup is pretty unusual, and the formatting page is surprisingly unhelpful. I.e. how to write a link I figured out only because I thought, perhaps using the same markup formatting; which turned out to be right. Hi-Angel (talk) 10:23, 6 October 2016 (UTC)

User's files are sourced after their system-wide counterparts (i.e. ~/.zshrc is sourced after /etc/zsh/zshrc), so things set in ~/.zshrc should normally not be undone by /etc/zsh/zshrc. But I guess it's possible for /etc/zsh/zshrc to define a function that changes $PROMPT under certain conditions. I probably shouldn't have called the content questionable.
About formatting, start with Help:Editing then Help:Style, Help:Style/Formatting and punctuation and Help:Style/White space. There is also Help:Cheatsheet. -- nl6720talk 10:48, 6 October 2016 (UTC)
