:Yeah, I was stupid. I have set the default shell to /usr/pkg/bin/bash
:and started an upgrade of packages in the evening which has removed bash
:as well, obviously. All would have been good if DragonFly didn't spit
:out some race error (v 1.5.4 yet, was just about to start
:buildworld/buildkernel for 1.6.0, of course I cannot report it :-P)
:making the build processes fail somewhere, leaving me with no bash
:installed but bash as default shell for my root account and regular
:account as well. If I follow the instructions at
:, then when I chsh, vi does not display things properly (will fiddle
:around with this later of course, if I cannot help it any other way, I'm
:just in a hurry now), so I cannot edit the info. All I could find out is
:to get the bash package written to some removable medium and install it
:from there. Is there some other, simpler way - perhaps involving the livecd?

    copy /bin/csh to /usr/pkg/bin/bash temporarily and you should be able
    to then fix up your shell.
