[SunHELP] /bin/sh || /sbin/sh ?
Thu Apr 4 20:33:55 CST 2002
I noticed a discrepency between a couple of my boxes where roots shell was
set to /bin/sh
on one and /sbin/sh on the other.
# ls -l /bin/sh
-r-xr-xr-x 4 root root 95316 Jan 18 18:08 /bin/sh
# ls -l /sbin/sh
-r-xr-xr-x 2 root root 286884 Jan 18 18:08 /sbin/sh
I had thought /bin/sh was choice but given this.......:
# file /bin/sh
/bin/sh: ELF 32-bit MSB executable SPARC Version 1, dynamically
# file /sbin/sh
/sbin/sh: ELF 32-bit MSB executable SPARC Version 1, statically
and the fact that the remainder of my boxes have /sbin/sh,
....that idea gets shot out the window. I obviously want statically linked
on any box
with a /usr mount point. So what gives? Is it a backup shell or is
/bin/sh wear'n a bourne
logo? =) anyways input on this would help settle my soul.
