Re: Segfaults on install (SUA version < 6.x) (FIX)

I just did a fresh install of SUA and debian interix on Win2k3 Server

packages, and then looked up the notes from my first install and
remembered the problem.

In my case, I was getting cores from perl with some of the dpkg-*

* The FIX:

  Before running "ksh setup", either:

   - install the hotfixes for this issue [Preferred]

     +For SUA 5.x, I believe its 948918

     +For SUA 3.x, I believe its in the 913030 rollup [UNTESTED]

   - edit boot.ini and change /noexecute to
    /NoExecute=OptIn or /NoExecute=alwaysoff

     Note: NX bit protection (MS calls it DEP) is a good thing,
     so don't use this one unless the first one won't work.

Can we add this to the INSTALL doc?

I have added the necessary hotfixes for 2k3, thanks.

* unrelated bug fix: base-files

 base files needs to either check for the existence of
 /usr/local/man, or use ln -sf to create the file.

"ln -sf" has already been used, but apparently the native interix ln can't handle existing dirs with -f. I now simply added "|| true".
