    I am using debian

    I am using debian

    my problem is that i was trying to install cshell but I did not complete and I changed the shell for the root

    now when I am trying to login as root it gives me the following message

    Cannot execute --csh: No such file or directory

    my /etc/passwd

    root:0:0:root:/root:--csh


    I think it can be fix by changing the top line to /bin/bash but I cant because need root pass to do that the sudo is not enable

    what can I try?


    it is not a new install I been using this for a while and have a lot of important stuff



    thanks
