    Unfortunately it only works with Ubuntu 10.10.

    Judging by the console errors that flash past it is a script written that uses bash-specific functions. Running “sudo sh” on Ubuntu runs dash which is *NOT* Bash and runs only standard sh syntax.

    Yes, this script, when examined in a simple text editor like Leafpad, clearly says it is designed to work with Maverick (10.10).

    @Adrian: yes, the instructions might be better if they were:

    sudo ./BleedingEdge0_8_x.sh

    ‘x’ being the number of the script at hand. I’ve downloaded 0_8_7 myself… (latest at time of writing)

    @Auldsbel: I have considered your recommendation and have renamed the script X_Y_Z where the version of Ubuntu is X and Y. My revision is Z. (currently 11_4_2) This way you can browse through older files for the version that supports your distro. You can also manually modify the DISTROBUTION variable in the script for limited compatibility with “Helena, Felicia, etc.”
