Time Command error in Slink?
I have found a problem when using the time command. From the man page
-o FILE, --output=FILE
So the command 'time -a -o log makebzImage' should log the time used
to compile the kernel (in this example) to the file 'log'. What is
does instead is : bash: -a: command not found Then reports the time
when the compile completes. Nothing is appended to the log file.
the man page example:
The man page example: time -f "%E real,%U user,%S sys" ls -Fs
bash: -f: command not found
My question is, is this a problem version of bash I have installed,
or is the time program slink installs just not working as advertised?
GNU bash, version 2.01.1(1)-release (i486-pc-linux-gnu)

Could someone running Potato with bash 2.02.1-1.3, see if the same
thing happens there?
