Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 211739
bash quoting broken
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:46 EST
Description of problem:
Quilt fails to build on FC-5 because it's configure script detects the following
bug in the bash:
checking whether /bin/bash quoting works... no
You have a version of `bash' which suffers from a quoting bug.
This is a known bug of bash 3.1, which was fixed by patch bash31-011.
You can get this patch at ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/bash/
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to build quilt
Build doesn't hit this bash configure problem
The patch to fix this is included in the configure output.
Note that quilt builds just fine on rawhide (soon to be FC-6) so that version
must have the patch to fix the issue.
I'm going to push a bash-3.1-9.fc5.1 package to updates-testing. Please try it
out when it appears.

I installed this today and quilt built fine. Regular bash operations seem to be
functioning as well. The update looks good, thanks!
