The linux src at some point must have met a windows computer because all of the shell scripts have CR/LR carriage returns and these DO NOT work in the bash shell.
Right now the linux source code is useless without recursively altering every file in the src. I started to see how long it was gonna take to fix the src, but it's just one file after the other that needs fixing.
Oops, I made a mistake, it's not just the shell scripts, files like the libtools/config.sub won't work correctly either.
Everything is working in CVS. I should be making a new release soon.
