Broken simbolic links
 
Hello

I have just downloaded the Amigo 2.0 file (amigo2.0.zip) and unzipped into my computer using WinRar. I have successfully booted the system on a Windows 98 machine (FAT32, I guess). But when I tried to run 'startx', a error message appeared, saying that it could not find the 'sh' file. I went into '/usr/bin' and noticed that all the symbolic links are broken. When I execute a 'ls -l' command, they all appear in red, instead of blue, and the target of the links looks like 'sh -> bash\301\234\302\266\346\135\334\143\342\212' (this is not 'exactly' how it appears, I didn't write it down). I could manually fix this link, so things started working. But there are hundreds of symbolic links spread around the system, so I can't fix them all. Does anyone have a clue about it?

Thanks
Alexandre

Don't use WinRar. Usually the system won't even boot when unzipped with winrar. Try winzip or alzip instead. Amigo-2.0.zip is created with alzip, but winzip works fine to unzip them.

Ok, thanks, I will try again... :-)
