I am running redhat 8, I am completely new to linux, and I'd like to know more about shells.
I am used to using csh on unix, and would like to change my default shell in linux from bash to csh. As far as I can see, bash seems to offer less functionality than csh - I have been trying to find out how to do 'setenv' in bash for a couple of days before someone on this site said you couldn't do it.
So, my questions are:
How do I change my default shell to csh?
There must be some advantage to bash, otherwise it wouldn't be there, what is it?
you can change your shell wusing "chsh csh", but bash is generally more compelte than csh i think, bash doesn't have a setenv command as it doesn't need one.
is all you need to do.
you can edit the /etc/passwd file
don't hose it, or you wont be able to log in.
also with the kde user manager. thats safer.
