I have built a lot of apps on Linux but this has never happened before. I am following the instructions on ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=45667&page=2
Everything goes great, I even added my build lib folder to ld.so.conf to get rid of that warning message and added the libs to LD_BUILD_PATH as well. I run makepanda --everything and as the build progresses I see my console flash a message about shutting down and then Ubuntu shuts down and a .deb file is never created. I am pretty confused and if its something I am doing wrong I am going to have a pretty good laugh about it.
Stuff I added to .bashrc:
Ubuntu 8.04 / Python 2.5
