 /bin/tcsh vs /usr/local/bin/tcsh
I just rebuilt my box because i messesd up alot of the permissions, so this
time,  i made my user account that is member of wheel,  and then changed my
shell to /bin/tcsh instead of /usr/local/bin/tcsh ....  without thinking,  i
logged out,  and logged in as my user,  and ever since i cannot get back to
root...  nor can i change the shell for root....  If anyone has any
suggestions for me ..  (*i am already considering undergoing the 16 hr build
process for the machine again....*)    Please email me at

Vince Koski

Thanks in advance....

 /bin/tcsh vs /usr/local/bin/tcsh

Does /bin/tcsh exists?  Is it listed in /etc/shells?

Boot into single user mode and do the following:

boot: -s
#mount -a
(Edit root's default shell to /bin/sh ot /bin/csh)
#cd /etc
#vi shells
(Add /bin/tcsh)

Note: you'll want a statically linked /bin/tcsh.
