info test patch to use --no-progressbar only on RHEL5

Comment 3 Rob Landry 2010-05-26 15:18:52 UTC
bad news is older versions of RHEL5 include a version of sysreport without this option.

Comment 4 Rob Landry 2010-05-26 15:23:13 UTC
At least RHEL5 GA, I'm not certain the log of when and where sysreport changes.

Comment 5 Greg Nichols 2010-05-26 16:35:02 UTC
You mean sosreport, not sysreport.

So we should remove --no-progressbar compeletely, and add this fix to the v7 1.1 errata as well.

Comment 6 Rob Landry 2010-05-26 16:59:06 UTC
yes sorry, old versions of sosreport do not support the --no-progress bar option; IIRC the reason that was put in was because the shift to sosreport causes long strings of gibberish in the logs so it's not a bad thing to have unfortunately it seems to come and go between versions of sosreport.

Comment 9 Rob Landry 2010-05-27 13:59:56 UTC
is it worth it to go ahead and presume that at some point the --help will be wrong and v7 should try again if sysreport with --no-progress exits failed?
