Error when running bash


I installed bash into one HPUX Itanium server.
The dependencies I installed together with it were libiconv, termcap and gettext.

Installation was successful for all depot files.

However, when I run "bash" on the prompt, I get this error :

# bash
/usr/lib/hpux32/dld.so: Unable to find library 'libhistory.so'.

I tried to locate the file in /usr/local/lib/hpux32/ and also /usr/lib/hpux64 but that file is not located there.

How do I resolve this error?

Seems like they missed one - libhistory.so belongs to the "readline" library, make sure you have it.
