Looking for the way in...

Posted 09-27-2011 at 02:39 AM by Thor_2.0

Hmm, it's been some time since last post, all because I dont really know what to configure/make/install first. I went for binutils because that's where LFS kicks off, but get compile errors...

nothing to do for all

...fair enough...maybe I did'nt use the right version. I used 2.14 for this. At the time of writing, the configure is working for 2.21.1 and I'm not in a positive mood about this. The thing is that the configure does end nicely, leaving a makefile behind...

Test on prefix

Posted 09-19-2011 at 02:07 PM by Thor_2.0

Restart!

Partitioning, and formatting. Setting up an /etc/fstab and /etc/resovl.conf.
As a test, I downloaded lynx, and did

Quote:
./configure --prefix=$DST
where DST is the destination: /dev/sda3...

And...the install went straight to the right place: the hard drive instead of the ramdisk.

The first step is made.

Back to the drawing board

Posted 09-18-2011 at 01:26 PM by Thor_2.0

Okay, so, this approach failed. And...I think I know why.
Starting a Live CD (any Live CD) creates a file system...in memory. Installing anything makes that install in ... memory. I tried to persist that to disk by copying, but to no avail.
For example:

Quote:
grub-install /dev/sda
did'nt work, could'nt stat rootfs, so

Quote:
grub-install --root-directory=/boot
failed too, as it installed in memory.

Back to the drawing board......

Tempted to redo from start

Posted 09-18-2011 at 04:34 AM by Thor_2.0

Okay, so, all went well...the kernel compiled like a (slooooooooooow) dream - it took some time, but it's there. a vmlinuz was placed in the boot partition, now I'm stuck with the grub.
Grub (as all insiders know) has dependencies, m4 is one of them, well, bison needs it. M4 compiled, as soon as I downloaded the right one.
Bison is stuck in mid-make. Dunnow what ticktocks here, yet....

Maybe a redo is in order, just to "clean up the act"...

Still,...
