one thing:

i had the nice segfault with fileutils thing:

turns out that I had compiled glibc with -fomit-frame-pointer

now i just finished rebuilding glibc with gcc 3.0 and keeping the frame 
pointers, and it all works fine.

in fact, something to that effect is written in the glibc faq :)

as long as you keep to that, you should'nt have problems.

perhaps something to be added as a warning in the book?

like: "whatever you do, don't uze -fomit-frame-pointer when compiling 
glibc, joo w33l b skroowd!"

leo - now happy: he can ls stuff again!
