I'd suggest building your own binutils and gcc, it doesn't take too long and
usually works a bit better.
It is such a pain to build gcc. I think it used up an entire day when I built gcc 4.9.
That is an experience I hope never to repeat. Plus the cross compiler I downloaded
works just fine, so there isn't really a need.
others here think it's OK to depend on bash instead.)
Come on people, switch to
bash. It's better. What would we miss if we did
switch to bash?
I think there are probably quite a few people on tcsh or zsh. sh is virtually
guaranteed, bash is not.
Your saying there are computers out there without bash? It sounds hard to
believe. Bash is such a popular shell. Even Cygwin comes with bash. If
bash is such a problem, then I guess I could use awk or something else
to do the work I need. I'm not honestly concerned with the theoretical. Is there
a unix-like system out there that doesn't come with bash that OpenBIOS is
expected to support?
