Description of problem:

ksh conflicts with pdksh. Please port the ksh package to use the alternatives
system so that both ksh and pdksh may be installed at the same time.

Reason: oracle requires pdksh or their installer gets cranky, but ksh is often
Comment 1 Karsten Hopp 2006-07-19 06:36:23 EDT
You can't install both at the same time, alternatives is overkill for this.
If Oracle needs pdksh they should install pdksh. If someone prefers the real ksh,
he/she installs ksh. What's the point in having both installed when you can use
only one ?
