Hi all,

I wanted to post an update on this issue and let you know that RH has
closed the bug indicating that the issue has been resolved with
readline version 4.3-7.

So far, I have not seen an updated RPM specifically for RH 8.0 or RH 9
via the Red Hat Network. However the comments on RH's Bugzilla
indicate that an update is available for "Rawhide" which is RH's
test-bed platform version of the OS. I could not get on the RH FTP
server this morning, thus I checked RPMSEEK and found the following
for i386 platforms:

A Rawhide SRPM at:


A Rawhide RPM at:


And the Rawhide Devel RPM at:


Note that the dates of the above RPMs are 6/25/2003, which is 3 days
before I filed the bug report, so it would appear that RH was already
aware of the problem in readline 4.3-5.
