BASH in HPUX-11.31

Hi

I have downloaded and installed BASH 4.2.010 from following site in my hp rx2660 (hpux-11i v3)

http://hpux.connect.org.uk/hppd/hpux/Shells/bash-4.2.010/

I created a user and set start-up programm /usr/local/bin/bash

When I try to login it is giving following error

 

/usr/lib/hpux32/dld.so: Unable to find library 'libtermcap.so'.
Killed

Please help me on this issue.

 

Regardds,

Jose

Re: BASH in HPUX-11.31

When you download from the porting center, you need to download all of the runtime dependencies:

gettext libiconv termcap

 

There is a depothelper tool you can use to find all of the dependencies:

Shalom,

bash will work fine once the dependencies are installed as you already see.

Do not change the root shell in /etc/passwd. For HP-Ux that must be /sbin/sh

See this article for the reason:
