The Big OOPS!

Okay, compiling my systeme verything goes fine,
final stages, I switch to my "fresh" system and bam instant serious errors.
Bash Freezes!!
ps aux | grep tty6
where tty6 is the shell i chrooted to my new sys, returns something with these important words combined: [defunct] bash


okay, Im using bash-3.0, or so i thought I was.
Doing an experiment, I rebooted to my new system (never compiled kernel, so i tweaked grub to boot to my new system after look at my old ones kernel).
Successfully logged into my other shell: zshell.

then i did bash --version.



turns out, i forgot to change one of my scripts, when I updated to 3.0. my tools had bash 3.0 install, but my system then installed bash2.05b.

bottomline, 2.05b was installed from 3.0, resulting in a defunct bash that can even give a defunct ls!!

so, I tweaked my environment to look at /tools first again, and reinstalled bash-3.0.

Is this enough to prevent anymore defunct issues? or will I have to wipe it clean? (mke2fs -j /dev/somepartition)

ahahh, further research has put me into bash patches.

I applied two patches I received from the LFS patches archive, which was conveniently crawled by me and saved to my harddrive.

these patches solved the problem:

However there is a small possibility in that it was not the bash patches, as I reinstalled readline again just to make sure.

I normally do a safe 1 thing at a time debug but i was in a hurry..
