Furthermore, since the introduction of the sudo command (which is installabe by ports / package) prefixing commands with "sudo" seems to be okay for most tasks. And as you said, Prad, using FreeBSD's su command (su -m) will usually do just fine. Another "wisdom" about this topic: "If you see that you're spending so much time as 'root' that you feel you need to change the root shell to BASH, you're obviously doing something wrong." :-) -- Polytropon >From Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ 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"
