Description of problem:

$ texconfig conf
.....

Currently supplied /bin/sort does not accept options like '+1'.  Attached
trivial patch resolves the issue.

tetex-3.0-7

How reproducible:
always

Comment 2 Jindrich Novy 2005-11-04 09:40:27 EST
The sort behaves correctly for me:
[jnovy@enigma devel]$ texconfig conf | grep sort
[jnovy@enigma devel]$

with coreutils-5.2.1-48.1. What's the output of `rpm -q coreutils` on your box? 

I don't like the +1 argument to sort though.

coreutils-5.92-1

This is for "devel", remember?  And that is the current sort from "rawhide" which
become more POSIX-strict.  coreutils-5.2.1-48.1 is from FC4 and it will still
accept +1 for fields specifications.
Comment 4 Jindrich Novy 2005-11-05 02:54:39 EST
It's now fixed in rawhide.
