1 Just untar the archive and install with 'ebuild sandbox-0.2.1.ebuild
2 merge'. This should work. To be completely protected also install the
3 dynamic bash in a similar way 'ebuild dynbash-2.04.ebuild merge'. Note
4 that there is a small risk to installing a dynamic bash : updating glibc
5 afterwards crashes your machine, and updating ncurses and readline
6 segfaults the running bashes. The static bash is however not removed but
7 accessible as /bin/sbash. Unmerging the dynbash also puts the default
8 static bash pack into its place, so you can always revert.
