BlueDragon 7.0 Beta 2 on Ubuntu

BlueDragon 7.0 Beta 2 is now available, which is great news, but the installer doesn't work out of the box on Ubuntu. Luckily there's a very simple fix I found on the BlueDragon Mailing List. The long and short of the fix is to comment out specific lines in the installer script while keeping the file size the same.

Just run the following command to do the replace (adjust as needed for your file names/paths):

sudo cat BlueDragon_Server_JX_70_326-Linux.sh | sed "s/export
LD_ASSUME_KERNEL/#xport LD_ASSUME_KERNEL/" > BDSJX-70_326MOD.sh

Then set execute permissions on the modified installer:

sudo chmod +x BDSJX-70_326MOD.sh

Then run the modified modified installer:

./BDSJX-70_326MOD.sh

Worked great for me, and seems to be running MachBlog just fine!
