It is often unnoticed that FreeBSD has a mirror of the root user
appropriately named toor (whose shell can be anything).
The better thing to do is :
1) Install bash and poshinit: pkg install bash poshinit
2) Modify the shell for the user toor: chsh -s /usr/local/bin/bash
3) Set the password for toor: passwd toor
4) Logout and login as toor, and run the command poshinit
poshinit will :
1) automatically adjust your bash prompt to the current directory
2) create a portable shell environment (stored under $HOME/.shell/) that
you can reuse across Bash/Zsh under any OS: FreeBSD/Linux/Cygwin
If you do not want to use poshinit, you can yourself put the following
into your .bashrc:
export PS1='`pwd` # '
Hope this helps,
