i'm trying to cd-install crux2.3-i586 (from contrib dir) and running into
very strange problems:

1.
# /usr/bin/setup
/usr/bin/setup : line 263: syntax error near unexpected token 'else'

Problem place is at line 253 though:
' ) > $tmpfile 2>&1'

Apparently the piping is not liked by bash ???

Well, I did following:
# cp /usr/bin/setup /tmp/
# vi /tmp/setup (removed the piping)
# /tmp/setup

This allowed package installation to go fine.

2.
# setup-chroot
# cd /usr/src/linux-2.6.20.3
# make menuconfig
Makefile:278: /usr/src/linuc-2.6.20.3/scripts/Kbuild.include: No such file
or directory
/bin/sh: line 0: [: -lt: unary operator expected
make: Warning: File: '/usr/src/linux-2.6.20.3/arch/i386/makefile.cpu' has
modification time 8.4e+07 s in the future
make: *** No rule to make target '/usr/src/linux-
2.6.20.3/scripts/Kbuild.include'. Stop.

Now, the very same iso installs just fine under qemu (cpu emulation as an
athlon).

http://gentoo-wiki.com/Safe_Cflags#VIA_Processors says that this processor
reports wrongly i686, instead should be i586.

# uname -p
i686

Any suggestions are warmly welcome!
