one thing to note.. if you are using a fresh install of karmic 9.10 make sure you have the patch program install prior to running the script and patch:

sudo apt-get install patch

Joe Engressia said...

@my good friend
no, LOL.
We can't run sudo "apt-get install patch", cos
the patch must be downloaded, then we have to extract it and run it.
the patch is not available on ubuntu package.
