possible to update bash to version 4.1 on 8.04 LTS ?
I've been having a bunch of issues with Lucid and have dropped back to
Hardy to see if they persist.
Have you tried a later version, like 11.10, to see if these problems have been fixed. I am asking this because Ubuntu 8.04's support ended on 12 May 2011 for desktops. But, if you are on a server, then there is no problem.
*But I need to have bash >= 4.1 and have
not found a way to update the version (3.2) on Hardy. *Is there one?
Bash 4.1 will also need some updated dependencies. So, to use bash 4.1 on Hardy, you will need to use the updated versions of all the dependencies of bash. In case you want to do this anyway, just download all the .deb files (of bash and its dependencies) from http://packages.ubuntu.com/lucid/shells/bash. This page also has links to the download pages of it's dependencies. Just go ahead and download/install all of these dependencies (and in turn, the dependencies of the dependencies).
