Well, there ya go. Either downgrade to bash 3.1 or try svn in the next day or so when we'll hopefully have accounted for both 3x and 4x versions of bash.

Yep, so Brian is using Bash 4. Bash 4 is in /testing for a reason. :-)

I would be curious to know if the other posters in this thread that are having problems are also using Bash 4.

ok, so my question now is how it got installed. This is a bit worrisome to me, because I am 100% sure I installed nothing from testing on this computer. The only possibility I can think of is that this somehow came from a "slackpkg upgrade-all". I don't use any other package manager. Hmmm. Maybe I should abandon slackpkg and sbopkg and go back to the manual way.

Thanks for noticing this. I'm sorry I responded no to the version question before, but really, I don't understand how it is possible.

How does slackpkg treat upgrades when different versions exist in the main branch and in /testing?

Brian

I don't know. While I naturally use sbopkg, I don't use slackpkg, but that was my initial suspect, too. Slackpkg may have an option to enable or disable /testing. If it's allowed to look in /testing it's going to correctly see that you have a bash installed and that bash 3.1 isn't the newest, so will upgrade you. But its default configuration certainly shouldn't do that. It's my understanding that it's a solid, sensible program, but if you can't find anything amiss in your configuration and/or that is the default, you might report it to the slackpkg folks as a bug.

I had the bash from testing. After downgrading it worked just fine.

Good to hear.

BTW, the latest revision of sbopkg in svn should now work in either shell, at least when it comes to this issue.

I upgraded to 3.1.17 and it works fine. slackpkg upgrade-all does not suggest upgrading to the /testing version. So I must have been sleep-walking one night. Thanks for the help, and sorry again for the misinformation.

Blame it on Microsoft. They've hired ninjas to sneak into linux users houses and screw up their systems.
