I have changed the root shell to Bash on another machine I use as a CVS server and haven't noticed any issues yet, but I've been wondering if I'm setting myself up for problems by doing so. Does anybody know if it's okay to change the root shell on FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE-i386?
What I do is add the following lines to /root/.login : if ($?prompt) then if ( -x /usr/local/bin/bash ) then # echo "Switching to bash" setenv SHELL /usr/local/bin/bash exec /usr/local/bin/bash -login endif endif I've been doing this for at least 10 years. I haven't had any problems with it, but Your Mileage Might Vary. -- Garance Alistair Drosehn = g...@gilead.netel.rpi.edu Senior Systems Programmer or g...@freebsd.org Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute or dro...@rpi.edu _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
