 tcsh "Not a login shell"
Hi,

        I just installed tcsh on a new Solaris 7 sparc sytem.  I installed it
as /usr/local/bin/tcsh.  When I attempt to run login from tcsh, I get a
"Not a login shell" message, which I of course do not get with any of
the pre-installed shells.  I tried creating an /etc/shells file
containing the line /usr/local/bin/tcsh, but this had no effect.  What
am I doing wrong?  Thanks,

Ben Lazarus

That error message means that the current shell process isn't the one that
was created for you when you logged in.  For instance, if you login and
then type "/usr/local/bin/tcsh" you're in a sub-shell, not in your login
shell.  Is that what you did?
