Advisory: RHBA-2012:1381-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-10-17
Last updated on: 2013-02-20

Details

Updated dash packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 6.

The dash packages provide the POSIX-compliant Debian Almquist shell intended for
small media like floppy disks.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Prior to this update, the dash shell was not an allowed login shell. As a
consequence, users could not log in using the dash shell. This update adds the
dash to the /etc/shells list of allowed login shells when installing or
upgrading dash package and removes it from the list when uninstalling the
package. Now, users can login using the dash shell. (BZ#706147)

All users of dash are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix
this bug.
