Description vadim 2000-04-01 15:06:15 EST
/bin/bash on both RH 6.1 and 6.2 is bash1, while MAKEDEV sometimes uses
features introduced in bash2. In particular, the current implementation of
first() and second() in MAKEDEV really needs bash2 (and without it devices
like /dev/sdaa cannot be properly created)

Also, while not being a bug, it could be that when creating /dev/sdaa* you
didn't mean to create /dev/sdaa and /dev/sdaa[123] only (for sd[a-z] you
create /dev/sd?[12345678]).
Comment 1 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-04-03 14:58:59 EDT
Both of these items will be fixed in MAKEDEV-2.5.3-1 and later in Raw Hide
(ftp://ftp.redhat.com/pub/rawhide/i386/RedHat/RPMS/).  Please reopen this bug ID
if an upgrade does not resolve either of these.
