OSH (Oil Shell) is a Bash-compatible UNIX command-line shell. OSH can be run on most UNIX-like operating systems, including GNU/Linux. It is written in Python (v2.7), but ships with a native executable. The dialect of Bash recognized by OSH is called the OSH language.
Install the AUR package.
Make sure that OSH has been installed correctly by running the following in a terminal:
This will start an OSH session and change the shell prompt to:
Identify an installed binary and attempt to invoke it in the OSH session to confirm that the output is correct.
osh$ ls ...
Making OSH your default shell
Change the default shell before removing theAUR package.
Run following command:
$ chsh -s /bin/bash user
Use it for every user with osh set as their login shell (including root if needed). When completed, theAUR package can be removed.
Alternatively, change the default shell back to Bash by editing
/etc/passwd as root.
/etc/passwdas it helps prevent invalid entries and/or syntax errors.
For example, change the following:
Reproducible bugs/errors may be reported on Github. When filing a report, please include the output of OSH when it is running in verbose mode. To enable verbose mode, execute the following:
$> export OVM_VERBOSE=1
Assertion `sts != -1' failed
$> osh osh: Modules/main.c:347: Ovm_Main: Assertion `sts != -1' failed. Aborted (core dumped)
This error occurs when the OSH binary is stripped. The PKGBUILD file in the AUR explicitly disables binary stripping; however, custom
makepkg configuration files may override this option. In the event of this error, attempt to reinstall OSH without any custom configurations.
