I have installed ubuntu 11.10 on my PC and the default shell i got was dash
i found it out by
But i could not run some of the scripts and thought of changing the shell to bash.
so i did,
cd /bin rm dash unlink dash
rm dash was success, but when i try to unlink dash i got message
link: cannot unlink `dash': No such file or directory
i got the same before using rm dash also
so i used
ln -s /bin/sh bash
ln: creating symbolic link `bash': File exists
then i did
sudo unlink /bin/sh
after the step sh was removed from /bin.
i downloaded bash-4.0.tar.gz from http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/bash/ and tried to configure , but again i got
bash: ./configure: /bin/sh: bad interpreter: No such file or directory
please let me know how to solve this problem.
i need to install bash .
