Bash Script Help

Recommended Posts

ok I'm writing this install script .. you can see I have functions that do somethings (most are not done)..

what I am having a problem with is the last 8 lines.. the if statments for the menu.. I have tried if and elif but it only takes options 1 the rest it ignores..

I have no clue why..

I now made mutiple if statments.. but still same thing..

also tried (as you can see) to change numbers for letter.. no work.

the partition (option 1) is the only one working.

thanks for any help
