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 main.sh on
the main.sh script (bash script) has -eq -gt operators which causes bash to
have this output :

main.sh: [: -gt: unary operator expected
main.sh: [: -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.

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.
