    Accepted Solution

    You can download bash from here:
    (select your architecture!)
    Unzip the package:
    gzip -d package.depot.gz
    Use 'swinstall -s package.depot'
    Do not (I repeat, do not!) make it the default shell for the user 'root'
    Also, if you require dependencies, you can find them in here:

    Assisted Solution

    the best way is to get the Linux porting kit directly from HP.
    it is for freee and it contains besides of a lot of other tolls the GNUbash.

    Does anyone know if there is a software repository for packages for HPUX 11.00?  For specific reasons I can't upgrade our boxes to 11i any time in the near future, but man do I miss bash.
