Description edward.connell 2000-05-16 13:45:11 EDT
The latest 'cp' always runs interactively as if '-i' option is set.  (We
realize the copy will fail...it just fails wrong now.)

RH 6.2 cp binary (incorrect)
mithor@redleader> /bin/cp yy.out xx.out
/bin/cp: overwrite `xx.out', overriding mode 0000?

RH 6.1 cp binary (correct)
mithor@redleader> ./cp yy.out xx.out
./cp: cannot create regular file `xx.out': Permission denied

Remove the alias cp="cp -i" line from your ~/.bashrc
