    source /etc/profile don't work

    Hello,
    I changed umask value
    $ umask 0044

    I'm trying to reload the umask value configuration (0022) without exit of shell session:
    $ source /etc/profile

    but don't work.
    How can I do?

    Thanks in advanced

    hi
    load the /etc/profile into an editor and have a look at those sentences:

    # The default umask is now handled by pam_umask.
    # See pam_umask(8) and /etc/login.defs.
