Hi all

Iv've just created a new user on my new x86 Solaris box. I've also
downloade a bash shells and put it in /usr/local/bin

The shell works fine. I've set my new user to use this bash, but when
trying to login I get a 'No shell' message

anyone ??

Check your /etc/passwd file again. Is the login shell field the full
path to the shell you downloaded? Downloaded? The executable? Are you
sure it was built for your harware/OS combo?

You need to have a list of valid shells in the /etc/shells file.  For
example, a list would be:

/sbin/sh
/usr/local/bin/tcsh
/usr/local/bin/bash
...

Create a file /etc/shells that contains:

/usr/bin/sh
/usr/bin/csh
/usr/bin/ksh
/usr/bin/jsh
/bin/sh
/bin/csh
/bin/ksh
/bin/jsh
/sbin/sh
/sbin/jsh
/usr/local/bin/bash
