I require Bash 4.2 or higher. Amazon Linux default repositories only provide Bash 4.1. I have done some searches and can not find a yum repository for recent versions of Bash. I don't want to compile from source, because I want to outsource keeping abreast of bug fixes (such as Shellshock).
I am looking for either a yum repo I can install for recent Bash binaries, or another workable way to keep a recent version of Bash on the server.
This is yum output on one of the nodes in question:
[ec2-user@nodeX ~]$ sudo yum install bash Loaded plugins: priorities, update-motd, upgrade-helper 33 packages excluded due to repository priority protections Package bash-4.1.2-15.23.amzn1.x86_64 already installed and latest version Nothing to do
Note this is a crosspost of my previous question on the "Unix and Linux" Stack Exchange site.
