Thread: Change shell?

  1. #1
    Default Change shell?
    I saw a forum post or page on the iPhone Dev Wiki, or somewhere that showed how to change the shell to "bash".

    But I cannot find it anywhere. Does anyone have or know of the link?

    Secondly...what is the difference from running dropbear vs. ssh2 binaries that were compiled?

    I did everything like the wiki said.

    But whenever I open terminal using Bash, the terminal hangs after the any first command.

    I tried updgrading to all versions avaliable but not success.

    Tried with csh and everything works fine.

    Any thoughts?

    1. goto /var/root
    2. create a file called .profile

    3. edit .profile with pico or your favorite text editor the file should contain this info:

    # Load /bin/bash when Mobile Terminal starts.
    4. save .profile
    5. restart Terminal or type source .profile

    Thats it!!! i still dont know how to get .bash_profile working when you start the bash shell. let me know if you can shed some like
