Please don't get confused: The Bourne Shell sh is to be considered a batch shell primarily, it's not a dialog shell in the first place. This is what the Bourne Again Shell bash would be mentioned as. You can install it via "pkg_add -r bash" and then use it (note that it's /usr/local/bin/bash then, not /bin/bash as in Linux). You can use the chsh command to do this. What does happen if you start a C Shell session from within the working sh? Like this: $ csh [EMAIL PROTECTED]:~% _ Does this work? Personally, the C shell is my favourite dialog shell, allthough zsh and ksh, both available for FreeBSD, are powerful tools, too. -- Polytropon >From Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
