Current I am running

$ 3.2.57(1)-release

I have the new shell in


and I can run it directly with

$ 4.3.42(1)-release

I have done

$ chsh -s /usr/local/bin/bash

I needed to fully quit the terminal application in order for the changes to take effect. osx is different in this way as it leaves applications 'open' even when all current window occurrences of it are closed.

  • Did you add /usr/local/bin/bash to /private/etc/shells? – fd0 Jun 3 '17 at 18:44
  • I did not. Did not need to. – Michael Durrant Jun 3 '17 at 22:35
  • I don't think you can expect different behavior on any other U*x. – tripleee Jul 4 '17 at 5:13
