Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

So - I applied the patch, everything compiled without errors and it won't run. Trying as both root and user I get the "segmentation fault".
What do I look for to sort this out?
Are you starting it with any options? I was running into exactly the same problem, and it turns out that using the -p flag caused a seg fault. Replacing it with -pos lets it run fine. Prior to using the patched version of wbar, -p worked fine.
Weird. The only thing I can think of is that your environment is significantly different from mine. I built wbar using the Slackbuild and all files from the link rockslinux gave. I'm running 64 bit 13.1 multilib with the huge.smp kernel (188.8.131.52). The other possibility is that if you've been installing this multiple times, there may be some conflicting files. It might be a good idea to try and completely uninstall, build from the Slackbuild and see if it works.
