Sticky issues with tar...

Posted 09-05-2011 at 12:24 PM by Thor_2.0

Tar does not unpack...well, the TTYLinux tar does'nt. It seems that the Busybox tar cannot handle all the tars around.

Since I try to assemble something from the bottom up, most (all? dunnow yet) software comes from gnu's site, so, untarring is a must.

Workaround: install the GNU tar. To do that I need to start up with a Live CD that has a good/working tar, download and untar in folders, and re-boot with TTYLinux and compile the software.

To do that,...

The first step is to set up some persistence. I choose a 16Gb USB stick. I figured, since it's an experiment, and since harddisks are somewhat in short supply...why not.

First step: boot with the CD .. and the USB stick plugged in.
Second step: recon:

fdisk -l
came up with sda as drive...the USB stick, as the harddrive is unplugged.
Third step: lay out the drive

Quote:
fdisk /dev/sda
and calculate the partitions:...

...sunday is one of those days where time (at least for me) ticks too slow.
So, why not try something ultra-zany: build a Linux from the ground up.

Following the "road sign" laid out by Linux from Scratch, I used a footprint to get started, and choose TTYLinux.

In this blog, I'd like to give a step-bystep account of my endeavours, hoping to retain some things in the "stream". Any and all comments are welcome...of course.
