Description Harald Reindl 2012-06-22 13:12:07 UTC
this is caused by having "Provides: ldconfig" in glibc
and still having /sbin in PATH


Comment 1 Roman Rakus 2012-06-22 15:28:10 UTC
What's wrong in bash?

Comment 2 Harald Reindl 2012-06-22 19:27:17 UTC
/bin and /sbin has to be removed from the PATH
there is nothing in this folders

so /usr/bin and /usr/sbin are the path's to go

Comment 3 Roman Rakus 2012-06-23 13:47:03 UTC
The DEFAULT_PATH_VALUE in bash (/usr/local/bin:/bin:/usr/bin) is used only if the PATH env variable is not set.
There weren't any complains about the value, but after UsrMove I can understand that /bin is wrong, so I will just remove /bin.

Comment 4 Fedora Update System 2012-06-23 14:33:18 UTC
bash-4.2.29-2.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.

Comment 5 Harald Reindl 2012-06-24 00:11:17 UTC
i do not see this changed
(yes this is a new ssh session after update)

from where comes "/sbin:/bin" in $PATH below?


[root@srv-rhsoft:~]$ rpm -q bash

[root@srv-rhsoft:~]$ echo $PATH

[root@srv-rhsoft:~]$ cat ~/.bash* | grep /bin/
stat /usr/bin/ffmpeg 
yum provides /usr/bin/cur
yum search /bin/cur
yum install /bin/cur
yum install /usr/bin/cur
yum provides /bin/bash
yum provides /bin/cur
cat /usr/local/bin/dbmail-cleanup
cat  bashrc | grep /bin/
cat profile.d/* | grep /bin/

[root@srv-rhsoft:~]$ cat /etc/profile | grep /bin/
if [ -x /usr/bin/id ]; then
HOSTNAME=`/bin/hostname 2>/dev/null`

[root@srv-rhsoft:~]$ cat /etc/bashrc | grep /bin/

Comment 6 Roman Rakus 2012-06-25 07:27:21 UTC
But your report is about hardcoded PATH value. The hardcoded PATH value in bash is used if and only if PATH env variable is unset.
