UPDATE GREP from 2.4.2 to 2.5.1a

Development tools

Install the Precompiled C development environment, running on the LS

Get the source tarball and compile

Download and install the latest version of Grep

cd /mnt/misc 
wget http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/grep/grep-2.5.1a.tar.gz 
tar -zxvf grep-2.5.1a.tar.gz 
cd grep-2.5.1a
./configure 
make 
make install


Overwrite your current grep version

cp /mnt/misc/grep-2.5.1a/src/grep /bin/


reboot your LS (linkstation)

reboot


Check your new grep version

grep --version

When it shows 2.5.1a it worked!
