Assuming you build the shell statically linked, and put it in the root partition, you're unlikely to have any trouble. However: - that is what the "toor" user is for - in my own opinion, anyone who cares what shell root runs is probably spending too much time running as root -- Lowell Gilbert, embedded/networking software engineer, Boston area http://be-well.ilk.org/~lowell/ _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
