Change Your Shell To BASH in FreeBSD

First, need to build from the ports tree.

cd /usr/ports/shells/bash
make install

Edit the shells file

vi /etc/shells

Add this line if does not already exist;


Execute the chsh command and change the line that says;

Shell: /bin/csh


Shell: /usr/local/bin/bash

Logout and login again and you will have a bash shell!
