Description Bastien Nocera 2005-09-29 08:57:18 EDT
1. Install RHEL3 U5
2. Install pdksh
3. Subscribe the machine to the Extras channel
4. Run up2date
5. pdksh will be removed, and ksh installed instead

Because ksh "Obsoletes" pdksh, pdksh (which has more functionality than ksh,
"echo -e" working for example) will be removed in favour of ksh. This is a nasty
side effect of Bug #131303, and can cause problems with customers using pdksh
scripts in production.

Adding this to the U7 blockers but should probably be fixed before that as it
creates regressions.
The work-around is to unsubscribe the machine from the Extras channel in RHN.

Was worked around for RHEL4 in up2date in bug #148952.
