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!
