I have the kernel source for 2.0.33. The equivalent text on my machine
if bash -c "hash $(ENCAPS)" 2> /dev/null
Presumably someone else was having some kind of problem with this
Here are some things to try:
This is what I get if I run the test in the Makefile (I don't have an
linda:~$ hash encaps
bash: hash: encaps: not found
linda:~$ echo $?
It returns a non-zero exit status. See if your system does the same.
If it doesn't find encaps but gives a 0 exit status, try doing
bash -c "hash encaps"
and see what error status that gives you. (I don't see why there should
be a difference, but there must have been some reason for making this
change in 2.0.33.)
