The SuSE bash initialization files look for a $HOME/.alias file and
source it if it exists, that's the best place for personal aliases.

The best place for personal shell variables is $HOME/.bashrc since it is
sourced for all types of shells (login, interactive, non-interactive).

Check out the SuSE unofficial FAQ for all the behind the scenes setup of
