first of all I would like to thank you for porting these wonderful open source tools.
i have some problems with bash4.3. at the moment i start bash4.2 in my ~/.profile file with the following command
if [ $?prompt ]; then if [ -z "$BASH" ]; then if [ -x /u/tools/bash4.2/bin/bash ]; then exec /u/tools/bash4.2/bin/bash --login fi fi fi
This is going very well. (Except that I am fixed on codepage 1047)
If I change the above code to bash4.3 there are massive problems. A lot of nonsense is output on the console. It looks to me like the file /etc/profile is interpreted as an ASCII file. But it is EBCDIC and untagged.
If I leave out the “–login” parameter, /etc/profile is not sourced and I have my shell.
Unfortunately with the following error message:
bash: warning: setlocale: LC_ALL: cannot change locale (En_US.IBM-1047)
Another problem is that, unlike in 4.2, the German umlauts do not work.
Best regards, Mike
