Description Jesse Keating 2007-01-19 15:44:38 EST
Could be related to termcap/ncurses switch, but I can't get a shell on tty2. 
Some text about no /bin/sh
Comment 1 Will Woods 2007-01-19 15:47:33 EST
On my system I get an error trying to load libncurses.so.5, and bash fails to start.

This is extra fun when there's a traceback - because os.system() uses /bin/sh to
execute its arguments, you can't get around the lack of bash by using the python
Comment 2 Jesse Keating 2007-01-19 15:54:53 EST
Yes, thats related to needing an rpm whiteout for ncurses.
