Adding the LFS user?
i typed in the commands to add the lfs user and when i added it it read that the password was( BAD PASSWORD : its way to short
retype new Unix password: ) so I type a new unix password and it reads
(Sorry passwords do not match) Whats up with that ??? if it dident like the first password why is it trying to match them ? I tried the first one again and of course that diden't work . What do I need to do? Now it asks for a password authentication the only two that I have given don't work .
OK OK I can su to the lfs user from root without it asking for a password but when I try from an unprivialeged user it asks for a password. so do I just su from root ? lfs user must not have a passwd asigned to it right?
Thanx for you guys putting up with me! I'm going to learn & build this system if it kills me. Even will indure the flames of the forums Ha Ha
Acouple things I found out that might help someone else. My host system is mandrake 8.2 ,and when I added the new lfs user throught the commandline like the book says . mandrake or userdrake changed the directory from mnt/lfs to home/lfs whitch of course nulled the $LFS variable so it dident work. I would echo $LFS and get no directory. I thought what the F&^% and I changed it in userdrake to mnt/lfs and then re exported and now it echos.
Can someone suggest a more compatable distrobution to use as a host? One that will not Think for YOU!! I thought I was getting away from the windows op,s
