LFS 7.2 progression report 1

Posted 09-10-2012 at 06:46 PM by ReaperX7

I made it to Grep-2.14 today and so far everything is compiling correctly and no problems that can't be solved are halting the effort.

I did run into one problem today with binutils-2.22 second pass, in which I had to remove the binutils-build directory and all files before it would build for the second pass. Not bad, but this wasn't in the documentation. There should be some added hints to remove/delete or clean up old workspaces and directories for multiple passthroughs for compiling,...

LFS 7.2 started.

Posted 09-10-2012 at 02:18 AM by ReaperX7
Updated 09-10-2012 at 02:21 AM by ReaperX7

Just got to section 5.8 of the LFS handbook, "Binutils-2.22 Pass 2", and save-stated my Virtual machine. Everything is slowly coming together.

I have a sizable build tomorrow with "GCC-4.7.1 Pass 2" and finishing the rest of the Temporary system, but I should be able to get it all done.

I started off using Slackware64 13.37 as my base platform, which turned out to be a nice platform to start with as all the tools are included by default with the...

Another day, another laptop that has crashed - gee I just gotta love M$ stuff - it's just so reliable, ain't it ?. Boot a 'nix live_cd and look at those partitions. Gee - what's that? A yellow triangle against the C: drive - that's SDA3 - ain't it? Must be, as that little, boot, partition is SDA1. No that's not right - SDA1 is PQrecovery, SDA2 is boot, SDA3 is C: drive. That's better. No it's not -the live 'nix cd can't read the partition's data - rat's that means that I can't copy out this person's...

same-gnome game

Posted 09-08-2012 at 08:00 PM by sundry_50
Tags same-gnome

The only game I play is same-gnome which is a strategy game. It was on my Ubuntu 10.04 but I had to dig around for a method to install it there. When I upgraded to 12.04 same-gnome was gone. Several hours later I decided there was no good way to put it in 12.04 even though I had the .deb. Desperation took over and I decided to download an 8.10 iso where I found same-gnome in the default games. Thank you VirtualBox! It requires running a virtual machine with Ubuntu 8.10 installed but I have...
