Please anyone give the steps to install bash in HP-UX

HI all,

 

          I have downloaded bash package and other dependency packages from hp site. Installed on the HP-UX version 11.23 and it does n't work. Getting library errors. Please suggest the steps to install the bash in HP-UX.

 

Regards,

 

Karthik R.

What are the library errors you get?

Did you install the files in the same location under /usr/local/?

>dld.so: Unable to find library 'libintl.so'.

 

Have you installed this too?

I don't know if there is any dependency checking on swinstall but you need them to run.

Hi:

 

Consider downloading Bash from the HP-UX Porting Centre:

 

http://hpux.connect.org.uk/hppd/hpux/Shells/bash-4.2/

 

Since there are runtime dependencies, I suggest that you avail yourself of the 'depothelper' the center offers, too:

 

http://hpux.connect.org.uk/hppd/hpux/Sysadmin/depothelper-2.00/

 

Regards!
