Patch fixing the problem.

Despite using bash'isms some rhts-* scripts use /bin/sh in the shebang line.
On systems, where /bin/sh is not bash these scripts fail to run because of syntax errors.

The attached patch fixes the problem.

Does this need to be in a customer only hot-fix release along with 866507?
Comment 2 Nikolai Kondrashov 2012-10-17 07:22:44 EDT
This is not urgent from my point.
Comment 3 Dan Callaghan 2012-10-17 18:11:55 EDT
Right, this is not too serious since on all conventional RHEL and Fedora systems /bin/sh will be bash and the rhts scripts work fine in bash's POSIX mode as far as I know.
Comment 4 Dan Callaghan 2012-10-18 01:59:51 EDT
Fixed in rhts-4.52-3.
Comment 5 Raymond Mancy 2012-11-22 01:42:35 EST
This has now been released
