I am new to ReaR. I use it because I was impressed when Schlomo
demonstrated ReaR on SLAC 2007 in Berlin :-) Especially, because the
demo ran with SLES 9, the OS we use here.

Now I'm trying ReaR on my servers. On a VMWare-based SLES 10 SP1 (SAP
Solution Manager) everything works fine (and on openSUSE 10.3 too). On
the "real" machines, 3 SLES 9 SP4 with SAP ERP on it, I'm stuck after
loading /usr/share/rear/build/default/50_patch_sshd_config.sh - the sed
process is started, but it never ends. After 20 minutes, I use Ctrl-C to
cancel the process. Of course, a rescue image is never built. :-(

Is this a known issue?

# sed -V
GNU sed version 4.0.9
# rpm -q sed
