Re: ash vs. bash

According to Marco d'Itri:

not in single user mode where you only need /sbin/sulogin.

$ file /sbin/sulogin
/sbin/sulogin: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1, dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped
$ ldd /sbin/sulogin
        libcrypt.so.1 => /lib/libcrypt.so.1 (0x40006000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x40033000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x2aaaa000)

ouch ! (oh yes, the latest sysvinit upgrade). Next time I will rename mine
sulogin-static :)

I'm using :


my /sbin/sh is a static shell (extracted from FreeBSD). I don't like sash
because a) it's a melange of sh and csh and b) it has only a 1 line prompt.
