all this occurs after slackware 9.1 is installed and no updates have been made. thats just where the problem arises, in trying to do updates and the /bin/sh not functioning properly.
yes, i did a ls -l /bin/sh and it showed a direct link to bash
access priviliages were also correct
it did work the first time i installed slack. everything seemed to go funny after the partition table got wacked by Compaq's auto system recovery option (bad move on my part)
anyhow, i just went thru a gigantic reinstall and repartitioning of EVERYTHING today and with any luck this upteenth attempt at installed slack is going to work. i'll update this thread if it occurs again.
as my best guess centers about root and the partition table affecting permissions and the like.... (based on what i've read)
