Change History

Running a system now with Bash 4.4 beta. The only problem I've seen so far is that it can have an error on install when building in parallel, due to trying to copy a file to /usr/lib/bash before that directory has been created. It might just be a bug that could be fixed with the final release, but for now just use -j1 on the make install command.

Bash 4.4 rc1 has been released. Still has the same problem with parallel building.

I've reported the parallel make error upstream -  http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-bash/2016-03/msg00006.html. For now, run this just before make install:

sed -i 's/^install-dev:$/& installdirs/' examples/loadables/Makefile
