Solaris 5.9

I had been using RH Linux. Why do I always have to type /usr/sbin/command everytime I try to run a command in Solaris 9.0? Also there are only csh, sh, ksh and zsh. I am used to bash how can I change this???

Well, I'm not sure what you're talking about with the /usr/sbin/command stuff. But as for changing your shell, this is specified and can be changed in /etc/passwd. You might want to make sure /bin/bash exists first. I'm not familiar with Solaris specifically.

Sounds like the person needs to add /usr/sbin to their PATH....

As for BASH, go to http://www.sunfreeware.com/ and download the package for it and install.

BTW, why did you switch from Linux to Solaris 9.0? Sun didn't get their act together and start adopting open source stuff until Solaris 10.

I'm guessing the reason you went to Solaris was because you got some free Sun hardware. Am I right?
