Why are you surprised? You hit the essential system components, so you
get a warning. If in the system scripts in #! you have hard coded
/bin/bash, then after uninstalling bash you will crash the whole

If you want to uninstall bash, make sure you can log in, so try:

grep bash /etc/passwd

Install it into '/usr/local/'. If you type eg 'find', first the path
'/usr/local/bin' will be checked, then '/usr/bin' and finally '/bin'.

see: echo $PATH

to change the order in $PATH, save this in ~ /.profile

and then:

. ~/.profile
