Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 29167
installer munges user homedir dotfiles
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:31:42 EDT
Installing wolverine on a system that already has a /home from an older
install. If you reinstall / (not upgrading the system). When you're
prompted to create users you create a user who's homedir already exists in
/home - at this point everything is fine.
The user who's dir you created will have their .bashrc and .bash_profile
files munged some chars from certain lines are removed.
I've been able to recreate this on two different systems.
Is there some regex magic going on b/c it appears to be some sort of s///
that is grabbing and replacing the wrong text.
Our installer team-lead thinks we should really fix this before next release.
please attach the before and after dotfiles.
