demonstration / exploration of busybox's cut behaviour
This problem is fixed in busybox-1.2.2-9.fc7 which will be in test branch soon.
I think that means it will appear in
It's not there yet.
The busybox site lists 1.8.2 as the latest stable version. 1.2.2 dates back to
F8 uses 1.6.1 (2007 June) as a base. It does not have this bug nor does it have
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=423781 . Would it be good to rebase
busybox-1.2.2-9.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update busybox'
This version seems to fix the cut bug. kdump now works. Thanks.
