Description of problem:
the PDKSH package included with prior releases of redhat, all the way back to
redhat 5.1 included links for ksh in /bin and /usr/bin. The new ksh package (presumably based on David Korns KSH93) only includes the /bin link. A link to /usr/bin/ksh should be added. Note that existing installations using NIS to distribute user identity information probably already have /usr/bin/ksh as the login shell (for interoperability with solaris, for example).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.set login shell to /usr/bin/ksh
2.try to login
Actual Results: Login fails due to lack of login shell
Expected Results: Should have logged in.
fixed Mar 15 2005, but unfortunately the package was too late for FC-4. Fixed in
