FreeBSD - Adding/setting console to Bash

Mind you after the fresh install you will probably have to do this as your root user until you install su or sudo.

$ echo $SHELL
$ cd /usr/ports/bash3/
$ make install clean
~ This will download extra components && files ~
$ chsh -s bash root
$ chsh -s bash $USER
$ exit

~ Relogin and verify ~

# echo $SHELL

^_^ you now have bash shell!
