unix shells & freebsd


I was searchin though google tryin to find a site that shows how to setup unix shells, but couldn't. I was hoping that someone here could direct me to a tutorial or site which goes though the process of setting up unix shells on a freebsd box for irc and other apps, like shoutcast servers, etc.

This seemed like the proper forum to post in, if not, please move to the right forum. Thanks.

# cd /usr/ports/

# make search name="insert name here of what you are looking for"

cd (to that directory)

# make install clean

make sure to read the file in /usr/ports called UPDATING ... important to see if there are any troubles you might encounter or anything files you need to alter to install the port you want.

Well this is how I would have done it if I still had my FreeBSD box alive and kicking *sob*

www.bsdforums.com is also a good place. The forums are the best place for info on just about any flavor of bsd, mostly net, open, and free.

Sorry if I mistook your question. You were looking on how to change the shell environment?

Cheers.
