Anyone help me i have problem on LFS 6.3 !!!!
 
HI,
this is my first thread so forgive me for my mistakes ,
i was copying file on the boot directory , it says
The path to the kernel image may vary depending on the platform being used. The following command assumes an
x86 architecture:

cp -v arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/lfskernel-2.6.22.5

what is the path i am little confused with it , this is on the chapter 8.3.1 can any one please help me
thank you in advance :)

What guide/book are you using? Link please! Also as I understand you are trying to do a custom kernel compilation? What distro are you using and why you need the custom kernel? Also what does that LFS 6.3 mean? And finally WHY are you dealing with 2.6.22 kernel, that is a VERY old kernel, first it is 2.6 series (we have 3.7 already) and second, the most current 2.6 series is 2.6.39 if I remember correctly and even that is more than a year old.

@wigry: This is Linux From Scratch related (LFS)

@dpak.verma.maa@gmail.com: Depending on your architecture (32/i386 or 64/x86_64) the kernel image is either created in arch/i386/boot/ or arch/x86_64/boot/ for this kernel (things have changed for the new 3.x kernels ).

BTW: wigry is correct in stating that all this is very old. Why didn't you build the current stable LFS?

PS: I've asked a moderator to move this thread to the LFS sub-forum.

LFS is quite interesting choice for a apparently relatively new Linux user. Too many ways to get your fingers burned but provides massive amount of experience and unfortunately frustration and disappointment but eventually pays off I guess.

Thank you every one for the reply,
Can we skip the following command before starting GRUB
dd if=/boot/grub/stage1 of=/dev/fd0 bs=512 count=1
dd if=/boot/grub/stage2 of=/dev/fd0 bs=512 seek=1

dpak.verma.maa@gmail.com 01-13-2013 10:34 AM

GRUB uses its own naming structure for drives and partitions in the form of (hdn,m)
i have 2 partition e.g sda1 which is swap and sda2 is lfs partition
> is this command "root (hd0,1) " correct ?

Moved: This thread is more suitable in Linux From Scratch forum and has been moved accordingly to help your thread/question get the exposure it deserves.

Hi

You should have root=(hd0,2)

hd0 is the 1st hard drive ,2 is the 2nd partition

@spiky0011
On which dir am i supposed to run the grub command.

spiky0011 01-13-2013 12:37 PM

Hi

It dosn't matter where you are running the command

dpak.verma.maa@gmail.com 01-13-2013 12:53 PM

HI,
It says Bash: grub command not found.
i tried on root and sources .

spiky0011 01-13-2013 12:59 PM

What is inside lfs boot dir

dpak.verma.maa@gmail.com 01-13-2013 01:04 PM

lfskernal, system.map, config.

spiky0011 01-13-2013 01:10 PM

Did you install grub???

There should be a dir called grub in there.

The only problem is I dont have any old lfs systems about so cant help to much, I would go back and maybe reinstall grub.

There should also be a grub folder in usr/lib/grub just check for that as well

dpak.verma.maa@gmail.com 01-13-2013 01:44 PM

usr/lib/grub is not there , i think i missed installing it.
