Hi Christophe,

I haven't tried it myself but it seems that your compile script is in
DOS/Windows format. The Linux shells don't like the ^M at the end of
each line. To get rid of this extra character do as follows:

Open the script compile in vim (Kommand: vim compile)
In vim enter the following string

:set fileformat=unix

and press the RETURN key.

Next enter the string


and press again the RETURN key.

The script is now saved as a Unix (Linux) text file. Now it
shouldwork, as desired.
