Description Pádraig Brady 2013-11-06 08:15:15 EST
Version: coreutils 8.21.11


The setup script /etc/profile.d/colorls.csh works fine in a stock F19
installation, but if a local admin adds a default shell setting of
"noclobber" in a profile setting that runs before this script (as we do)
then the script will error out with an error of:

/tmp/.colorlsXXX: File exists.


The script creates that temporary file with mktemp, but on the first
write it uses only a single redirect (>), which fails when noclobber is set.

Since the file is already created, I think we can safely use an append
redirect (>>) in all cases where that file is written to, which works
regardless of the state of the noclobber settting.


< if ( "$INCLUDE" != '' ) cat "$INCLUDE" > $TMP
> if ( "$INCLUDE" != '' ) cat "$INCLUDE" >> $TMP

I should have said the above is all on behalf of Ty Boyack <ty.boyack@colostate.edu> from: http://bugs.gnu.org/15819

Rawhide commit https://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/scm-commits/Week-of-Mon-20131104/1140247.html ... 
I'll keep it opened until fixed in next cumulative update for F19.
