Default shell

In debian 7.8 the default shell is bash. Do

env | grep SHELL

to check it.

Changing the default shell

To change the default shell to bash do


and enter an other shell like sh, dash, csh ksh


sh points to

ls -l /bin/sh

and you get

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 mrt  1  2012 /bin/sh -> dash

However, after doing

env | grep SHELL

the shell is still bash. What are we missing?
