Want to install Korn Shell on Fedora Core 7


Hi All,

I am planning to install Korn Shell on Fedora Core 7 which already has BASH SHELL on it.

What will be the impact of installing Korn Shell on Bash shell?
If there are any impacts or issues how can I over come it?

Thanks,
Tej

You just need to amend your entry in the /etc/passwd file to read /usr/bin/ksh instead of /bin/bash.
To double check where ksh is, use
which ksh
to find it.
The 2 shells are very similar, but differences remain, so I suggest you get a book or look on the web for the various help pages eg: http://www.kornshell.com/
