Description Crag Wolfe 2003-06-24 14:16:58 UTC
The Environment Configuration under installation documentation should probably
mention to the user that they should be using the bash shell (ie, the scripts
will fail using tcsh).

Comment 1 Karsten Wade 2003-07-04 09:15:22 UTC
Is this only for RPM installation?  Or do other installation methods require bash?

Do we know what exactly requires bash?  Is that requirement a bug?

If the issue is just with the RPM installation, this is the location I believe
should have the NOTE:

http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/rhea/RHEA-5.2.1-Manual/rhea-ig-waf-en/ch-bin-install.html#S1-RPM-BIN-INSTALL

If the issue is larger, and the target system needs to be using bash regardless
of OS, then I would post the NOTE on/around this location:

http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/rhea/RHEA-5.2.1-Manual/rhea-ig-waf-en/ch-pre-install.html

Thanks!

The existence of /bin/sh and the usage of a Bourne shell compatible
continues to be a requirement of UNIX based installations.

This has been included in the Rickshaw WAF Install Guide as an
appropriate admonition.
