Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 431085
bash is now linked against ncurses
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:12:12 EDT
Description of problem:
ncurses is in /usr (in RHEL5). This isn't good.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Moving back to bash for the moment - I think this was an accidental consequence
of the 5.2 bash rebase.
bash is now linked against libncurses, which is in /usr/lib. This is breaking
nightly RHEL5 composes as we did not know to account for this in anaconda. The
initrd and stage1 images don't contain the library, so it's causing lots of
problems (see bug 431054).
Can we get bash to link against libtermcap like it used to instead of
libncurses? This would require no changes to either the ncurses package (for
moving libraries into /lib) or anaconda (for including a new library). I'll be
happy to work with you on this if required. There is a bit of time pressure
here as we're currently holding up nightly tree composition and testing.
Fixed in bash-3.2-21.el5.
This bugzilla has Keywords: Regression.
Since no regressions are allowed between releases,
it is also being proposed as a blocker for this release.
Please resolve ASAP.
Already fixed in rhel 5.2 - bash-3.2.21.el5. See comment #3.
