Fwd: /bin/sh linked to dash? SOlVED, however..
# mv /bin/sh /bin/sh_original
# ln -s /bin/bash /bin/sh
sh -> /bin/bash
and mopac does its job. Hopefully, this should also allow the hundreds
of other codes inside the main code to work, if the same problem
However, I would like to have the opinion of "those who know" if this
is the correct way of doing and why with wheezy this change.

I wonder whether amd64 wheezy links /bin/sh to dash instead of bash.
I am getting error "Bad fd number, can't run mopac.h" in a mopac.sh
calculation (mopac compiled fortran, in fact a FOR005 file is
generated, and not deleted by mopac probably because it was running
I am asking that (and thus if a symlink is needed using bash, as in my
case) because with the same code (and same calculation) I had no such
error with amd64 lenny. I have just copied the whole
molecular-mechanics compiled code (which includes mopac among hundreds
of other codes) from a lenny machine to a wheezy machine. The reason
of the copy is that the molecular-mechanics code can't be compiled
with recent gcc/fortran (its loose fortran is not allowed by recent
compilers) while the wheezy cuda machine is far faster than the old
