[maemo-users] PATH Issue

More newbie problems!
I am trying to get ruby running on my 770.  I downloaded the tar file and
installed it in /var/lib/install/usr.  I created a .profile that added that
directory to the PATH.  After rebooting the 770, it does not seem to be
working properly.  Here is my .profile:

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/var/lib/install/usr/lib
alias la='ls -al'
cd $HOME

It seems to read the PATH properly - echo $PATH checks out ok.  However,
when I try to run irb (or ruby), it cannot find the files.  Also, the alias
doesn't work, nor does the terminal cd to ~.

I am using osso-xterm version 0.13 on a 770 running the latest version of
the OS.  Any idea what I'm doing wrong?
