Last modified: 2014-01-12 19:14:28 EST
Description of problem:
sourcing of remote files does not work as expected. This does not affect RHEL6 or debian distributions.
I would expect the same from both bash and source whereas this is not true.
[user@host ~]# source <(GET a8.lc/bashrc)
[user@host ~]# bash <(GET a8.lc/bashrc)
where bashrc contents are this:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
bash internal "source" function.
also present on RHEL4
Steps to Reproduce:
1. source <(curl -s a8.lc/bashrc)
contact me for more info.
RHEL-5.10 (the next RHEL-5 minor release) is going to be the first production phase 2  release of RHEL-5. Since phase 2 we'll be addressing only security and critical issues.
