Hi,

If you made the file in Windows notepad, it likely put in some extra characters which Linux doesn't like.
You could use tr to remove the \015 or just make the file in Linux using something like kwrite or vi editors.

For example:
Code:
tr -d '\015' file.txt > file1.txt
mv file1.txt file.txt

Sorry about that.

Maybe try: scp /bin/sh /bin

or maybe apt-get upgrade
