here's the solution to a problem I had when using Ubuntu as a build host.
In Ubuntu 6.10, bash does not properly execute some ROCK Linux build
scripts; ./scripts/Build-Pkg will abort with several segmentation faults when
run with this bash binary. From what I've heard Kubuntu 6.10 and 7.04 have
the same problem. To fix this, download, build and install bash from source;
these instructions assume your ROCK Linux source tree is located
tar xf download/mirror/b/bash-3.2.tar.bz2
for x in ../package/base/bash/bash3/*.patch ; do patch -p1 < $x ; done
cp -a bash /bin/bash
Now you can use the ROCK Linux build scripts without errors.
