Sometimes the sh link is not formed. This is done in chap 6. Till such time if u wanna use sh, just make a soft link to bin/bash. If it exists and it says permission denied, then logina as root and chown $LFS/static to "urlogin". Remember it is unsafe to work in root login in chap 5 so I suggest u do the chowning and relogin as "urlogin" and work. If not sure of suse since I have not worked on one.

I sad to say that I have fallen at the first hurdle, installing the static linked version of Bash 2.05a.

When I run the ./configure command I receive the following error:-
-bash: ./configure: /bin/sh: bad interpreter: Permission denied

I am using SuSE 8.1 which comes with Bash 2.05b.

Any assistance will be gratefully received.
