I'm stuggling to figure out what is going on here.
I've compiled NetBSD 2.0.2 and also done DIALOG-0.6z
which works nicely in my fully laden NetBSD box. (i.e.
the one I compiled it on)
However, when I copy the dialog file to a lightweight
cdrom-boot ramdisk version of 2.0.2 (basically a
dialog gives me this error when I run it:
/bin/dialog: 1: Syntax error: "(" unexpected
By way of a comparision, back on my "normal" box I
dialog version 0.3, by Savio Lam (firstname.lastname@example.org).
patched to version 0.6c by Stuart Herber
patched to version 0.6z by John Gatewood Ham
Am I missing something blindingly obvious about
compiling binaries and moving them between systems, or
is my environment in the cdrom boot not got enough of
"something" to allow dialog to run? My guess is the
latter, but none of the documentation about dialog
seems to mention what it might need.
any pointers would be really appreciated.
