For any natural number$m$(>1) let$P$($m$) denote the greatest prime divisor of$m$. By the problem of Erdős in the title of the present paper we mean the general version of his problem, that is, his conjecture from 1965 that $$\frac{P(2^n-1)}{n} \to \infty \quad {\rm as}\, n \to \infty$$ (see Erdős [10]) and its far-reaching generalization to Lucas and Lehmer numbers. In the present paper the author delivers three refinements upon Yu [40] required by C. L. Stewart for solving completely the problem of Erdős (see Stewart [25]). The author gives also some remarks on the solution of this problem, aiming to be more streamlined with respect to the$p$-adic theory of logarithmic forms.
