Installing bash

Hi,

I have gone through various threads on ITRC but havent reached anywhere. Either the links no more exist or dont open. Please help with the bash software as well as steps to install.

I downloaded bash-4.0-rc1.tar. Untarred it and ran ./configure. Then, ran make and some messages about an unexpected '-' in siglist were being popped up. When I run make again I get following:

# make

***********************************************************
* *
* GNU bash, version 4.0.0(3)-rc1 (ia64-hp-hpux11.23)
* *
***********************************************************

if cmp -s lsignames.h signames.h ; then :; else rm -f signames.h ; cp lsignames.h signames.h ; fi

Jupinder,

I m using B.11.23 U ia64

That depot has been gunzipped, now a simple

# swinstall bash-4.0.033-ia64-11.23.depot

must install it. Hope I am correct and no reboot is required?

Re: Installing bash

Yup no reboot,
anyways it would ask for reboot if you do it via SAM so no worries.

Re: Installing bash

#swlist -l fileset -a is_reboot -s depot_name

Re: Installing bash

Well, when trying to do the same thing in a different box, I get following message:

You do not have permission for this operation. The depot owner, system ministrator, or alternate root owner may need to use the "swreg" or
"swacl" command to give you permission. Or, to manage applications
designed and packaged for nonprivileged mode, see the
"run_as_superuser" option in the "sd" man page.

I am running this as root. So the error seems strange. Couldnt find similar error anywhere on net. Help !

Re: Installing bash

# /sbin/init.d/swagentd stop
# /sbin/init.d/swagentd start

or

#/usr/sbin/swagentd -r
Problems are common to all, but attitude makes the difference

Re: Installing bash

Restarting swagent helped in installing bash!

Thanks. Although the solution is strange

Now another:
$ bash
/usr/lib/hpux32/dld.so: Unable to find library 'libtermcap.so'.
Killed


I found many answers to the same problem the links dont open. They say that I need to take care of some run-time dependencies.

Re: Installing bash

You have all "light" that you need in that post you are quoting. Any program have some dependencies. In order to run that program, all those dependencies must be solved.

OK guys, so what is the ARIES emulator for then? ARIES on Itanium machines is designed to ALLOW you to run HP-UX PA-RISC programs in HP-UX Itanium machines.

The biggest problem here is that LIBTERMCAP is not installed. You need to find it and install it.

If you go to the bash download page here:
http://hpux.connect.org.uk/hppd/hpux/Shells/bash-3.2/

You will see a list of "Run time dependencies"
Run-time dependencies: gettext libiconv termcap

These must all be installed in order for BASH to work."

Horia..I completely understand what Patrick said but as i stated above, the link doesnt open. So just thought if I could get a link which opens. Thank you for continously helping me.

Re: Installing bash

It does not help because that page only keeps track of the latest version which will be:

http://hpux.connect.org.uk/hppd/hpux/Shells/bash-4.0.033/


(You could check the top parent directory:
http://hpux.connect.org.uk/hppd/hpux/Shells
)

So get the missing dependencies from there...
