I just started a new contract and have run into an issue I have never encountered before.
Their Oracle database was started under a korn shell.
I have all my bash scripts, have no test environment and just love bash for day to day use.
I have tried calling bash from .profile, but that gets messy when scripts need environmental variables and another shell gets spun up.
Can I simply edit /etc/passwd and start a bash shell at login without affecting a running process?
