Description of problem:
This bug comes from a long date, IIRC. I remember seing it on RedHat9,
maybe before. It's kinda harmless, and maybe no one cared yet.
On line 273 of rc.sysinit, it does:
action $"Setting clock $CLOCKDEF: `date`" date
Note that the command "date" is inside the $".." text, and so it gets
i18n'ed too. In portuguese, "date" becomes "data", and it spits an
error on boot time:
rc.sysinit: data: command not found
I also suspect you don't need the *two* "date" commands on that line,
just to print date on screen.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Just reboot the machine and watch rc.sysinit run.
Actual Results: I can see the error "rc.sysinit: data: command not
found on line 273".
Expected Results: The expected result was to see the string "Setting
clock $CLOCKDEF: " followed by the current date and not an error.
Fixed in 7.31.25.EL-1.
