ibus update fails if /bin/sh is not bash
Last modified: 2011-09-30 14:34:54 EDT
Description of problem:
ibus update fails if /bin/sh is not bash-compatible (but is still sh-compatible).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
(may still exist in ibus-220.127.116.1110419-18.fc15.x86_64)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -q dash || yum -y install dash
2. ln -sf /bin/dash /bin/sh
3. yum update ibus
ibus reports the following error:
"Error in PREIN scriptlet in rpm package ibus-18.104.22.16810419-18.fc15.x86_64
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.KHyekE: 4: Syntax error: Bad fd number
error: %pre(ibus-22.214.171.12410419-18.fc15.x86_64) scriptlet failed, exit status 2
ibus-126.96.36.19910419-13.fc15.x86_64 was supposed to be removed but is not!"
Update proceeds normally.
Error goes away if /bin/sh is a symbolic link to /bin/bash.
OK, I will include the fix when I will release the new version.
Probably I don't think this fix is needed asap since you know the workaround.
