10.5: Change your login shell in Leopard
Authored by: wjv on Oct 31, '07 05:37:26AM

Wow, chpass(1) has been patched to update Open Directory in Leopard?!

I'm pretty sure it didn't affect NetInfo in Tiger and earlier... did it?

Anyway, one can of course also manually go and edit the directory using dscl(1). Something like:

dscl . -change /Users/<username> UserShell <old_shell> <new_shell>

10.5: Change your login shell in Leopard

It has been like that at least since 10.3.

I never gave it much thought, but you are right, that is quite impressive.
