does anybody know how I can tell my xterm to invoke the new bash 4
(which I installed via Macports) when starting up? My wm is
ratpoison, but ratpoison does nothing than to start xterm. Ratpoison
in turn is invoked by X.app via ~/xinitrc.
In my Aqua-Terminal I can use the opt/local/bin/bash, but when I work
with cmd-lines I like to work with X11 instead of Aqua.
I think I have to reset an env variable like SHELL, but I can't
figure out how to change it BEFORE bash ist invoked.
Any hints (also links on the Internet where I can learn more about
these mechanisms) would be appreciated.
