Slack 10.1 login problem


I've just installed Slackware 10.1, everything went fine, but after booting
system prompts me for login/passwd... I type login/passwd, it displays
info that I have e-mail and then prompts again for login/passwd.

What's wrong?

THX in advance :-)

Your interpreter probably exited. Try to boot in single user mode ('linux single' from bootloader) and install bash (or any other interpreter you prefer). It's strange thing, however, it shouldn't allow you to install without it.

thanks 4 the answer... it's the seconf time that I installed
Slakware (previous install was using 10.0) and the same
thing happens. I am sure that I choosed "full install"....

Sorry 4 a lame quesion, but how do I install BASH from
single user mode?
