Description Hakan TERZIOGLU 2001-04-27 23:08:11 EDT
Kylix installer from Loki Games, crashes on RH7.1 after installing main
package RPM.
Because it can not successfully execute post install script on
the script (bash script) has -eq -gt operators which causes bash to
have this output : [: -gt: unary operator expected [: -eq: unary operator expected

No Problem with 6.2, 7.0 with glibc patches done. Also no problem on
linux-Mandrake 8.0
nor Suse 7.1.
Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-04-30 12:55:29 EDT
Please attach the script - can't figure out exactly what's going wrong without 
seeing what they're trying to do.
Comment 2 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-04-30 13:15:44 EDT
I have passed this on to the Inprise bug tracking system; reference number is 

Since -gt and -eq work perfectly in bash 2.04, I think this is related to 
something else they're trying to do. It's almost certainly a case of

BLAH=`something that doesn't work and returns an empty value`
if [ $BLAH -gt 2 ]; then

Most likely, it's a hardcoded /usr/bin/cut somewhere; cut has moved to /bin.

Comment 4 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-04-30 16:32:13 EDT
Ok, I'm now absolutely certain it's their bug and not ours. Their chklibc tool 
returns an empty value.
Please report this to Borland/Inprise, we can't fix up their proprietary code.
