Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 538754
Last modified: 2011-02-16 09:08:21 EST
The ksh (AT&T ksh93, package ksh-20050202-0.5) we supply through the Extras channel for RHEL-4 is very outdated and contains bugs in the job handling that are very difficult to fix without dangerous and invasive patches (if they're fixable at all). The job management has been however greatly improved in the newer upstream releases.
Could you please consider rebasing the RHEL-4 ksh to the version we supply in RHEL-5 (i.e. ksh-20080202-14)? There are no dependencies on the package.
