[mu TECH] Genetic breakdown in 5.1!

I apoligize for that, but "/bin/clone" in v5.1 has a bug: UMSDOS
filesystem is created correctly, but files containing DOS paths
(like "linux.bat") don't work.

Why? In linux.bat you can see this row:

                varloadlinloadlin @loadlin.cfg

but it would be:

                var\loadlin\loadlin @loadlin.cfg

LINUX users know this subtle problem! Shell interpreter leave intact
the "/" character (path separator in UNIX) , but translate "\l" as "l" !!!
This happens when (in new /bin/clone version) I, stupidly, wrote:


Anycase, all task not-involving this command (like muLinux first-time
installation, etc) are not touched by this disaster.

Ok, I'm going to remove this archive (mulinux-5r1.tgz), replacing them
with 5r2. Furthmore, in order to you would forgive me, I'm going
to put an update52.tgz in my MISC section.

This "patch" contains, also, a more robust "setup swap", with
consistency check.

Ci ho messo piu' a scrivere questa email che a creare il baco.
Cosa ci posso fare se nel mio liceo si insegnava solo il francese?


        echo Done.


Mi sarebbe piaciuto concludere con un'affermazione positiva, ma
non me ne vengono in mente. Vanno bene due negative?
