getting core dump error for bash shell

Hello All,

 

In one of C8000 workstation while giving bash command to change the shell i'm getting below core dump error.

 

# bash
Memory fault(coredump)

#

# bash -version
GNU bash, version 2.05.0(2)-release (hppa2.0n-hp-hpux11.00)
Copyright 2000 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

 

Do i need to upgrade bash?

Re: getting core dump error for bash shell

Note that the "bash -version" output indicates your version of bash is compiled for HP-UX 11.00. Which version of HP-UX are you running? (please show the "uname -a" output)

 

If you're actually running HP-UX 11.00, finding an updated version of bash will be tricky, as 11.00 has been obsoleted. You may have to compile an updated version from the source code yourself.

Re: getting core dump error for bash shell

You can find a very recent version of bash here:

http://hpux.connect.org.uk/hppd/hpux/Shells/bash-4.2.029/

 

Note that you should install the packages listed as "run-time dependencies" too.
