[maemo-developers] [maemo-developers] Maemo 3.0 bora installer updated

We have updated and improved the maemo 3.0 'bora' installer script to better
support some installation related issues.

The new version is available from the same location:



   -p URI  Specify http_proxy for scratchbox user (default no proxy)
   -s PATH Specify Scratchbox installation path (default /scratchbox).
   -a FILE Specify alternative sources.list file for both targets.


- Option '-s PATH'  is now correctly passed to the Nokia binaries installer.
  This makes it possible to use Scratchbox in an alternative location
  than the default "/scratchbox".

- Fixed the problem with "tr" command options (maemo.org bugzilla ID #945)
  This caused problems in some ubuntu releases.

- Supports setting http proxy parameter to targets. Now the script sets
  the http_proxy value set at command line to user's .bashrc .
  Running "apt-get update" inside the newly installed targets
  now works for those who need the proxy settings.

- Supports scratchbox user group other than 'sbox'.

- Option '-a FILE' allows to set alternative sources.list which is
  copied to both targets.

Happy hacking!
