The way pacman calls the scriptlets, it actually uses the shell from the _parent_ system. I know this for a fact, because Dan and I investigated, added checks for bash in the chroot, then realized it didn't matter and reverted it.
Are you _sure_ it's bash failing like you suspect? What happens if you just install vi and library deps in a chroot and try to run things manually?
I am not sure why we are talking about bash here, the shell used is /bin/sh which can be any shells, right? Are you sure the shell from the parent system is used? I could not find this documented anywhere. How do you explain that installing bash or adding a sh->dash symlink inside the chroot helps then?
To Allan : did you find any scriptlets which actually worked without bash installed? Even the most basic scriptlet not doing anything does not work here.
