binutils configure.guess - cannot guess build type
 
hi

I'm in the chapter 5.4.1 of lfs book 6.7, trying to configure binutils. but i get the error cannot guess the build type, you must specify one. How do i do that?

By the way the host system is the latest debian for i386 architecture.In the config.guess it detects the i686 arch ... Is that the problem?

I just don't understand to what build it refers.

Sorry if it is a noobish question

Solved! I just updated the config.guess file to a newer one, since the original didn't even recognized debian. After that i had to install gcc, since my debian haven't came with it.

Hope this helps someone.

Hi,

this sounds like you did not bother to check if your system fulfills the requirements to build LFS. Before you continue you should read this chapter again and check if all the necessary programs are available and are the correct version.

Hi,

I've successfully build LFS using Debian Etch (LFS 6.5) and Squeeze (LFS 6.7) and both can be used as hosts but they do have to be made compliant (as already stated by crts). Out of the box both will not be suitable.

@bisonapp: Do revisit the chapter crts mentioned and make sure all is ok otherwise you will run into other problems later on.
