Re: [suse-security] root has no shell


here would be a workaround:
mv /bin/false /bin/false.TEMP
ln -s /bin/bash /bin/false
echo "/bin/false" >> /etc/shells
login as root
chsh root
set it to /bin/bash
*undo /bin/false:
rm /bin/false
mv /bin/false.TEMP /bin/false

Hello All,

Ive got a big Problem. I changed the root shell to /bin/false.

There is neither a user in the sudoers nor is there any other root-user or even a user in the root group.

Is it possible to switch back the shell to /bin/bash or sh or something?

Ive tried:
sudo -- not in sudoers
su -s /bin/bash -c "command" -- "using restricted shell: /bin/false"

thanks in advance,
