You can get your tail in a crack if you boot to single user or another file system like /usr is not available. /bin/csh (which on FreeBSD is the same as tcsh) is always available and a few things are written so they expect it. So, leave root alone. If you must lower yourself to bash, make another account and set its shell to bash. You can even make an alternate root and make it bash if you really must work in root. USe vipw and copy the toor line in the passwd file and change the name to something you like and the shell to bash and the home directory to /root/whatever. Then set the password for this account As root do: passwd whatever follow prompts. You must put the id name on the passwd command or it will change root instead. I am not necessarily recommending all this, but it is better tham changing the actual root account's shell. ////jerry > > > Regards, > > Jurif > _______________________________________________ > firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org" _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
