I'm an old-school Unix guy, so my Linux skills are probably slightly out-dated. But this seems like it should be simple enough.
On a Red Hat Linux system where I do not have root (it is administered by the company IT department), I want to be able to change my login shell. Running chsh gives me:
$ chsh -s /bin/bash chsh: can only change local entries; use ypchsh instead.
So, I ran ypchsh instead:
$ ypchsh userid ypchsh: can't find the master ypserver: Internal NIS error
What gives? Anyone have any other ideas?
