You need to install the packages that are missing. In general there is no need to downgrade pacakges. You do need to change other things as well (for one: /bin/sh points to dash if I'm not mistaken, it should point to bash. I also believe Ubuntu uses mawk instead of gawk).

BTW: Ubuntu is notoriously hard to use as host for building LFS. Just too many things need to be changed to make it meet the requirements. If at all possible use the LFS liveCD

No, you are not creating a live CD when building LFS. When you finish building LFS you have a minimal, working linux system installed on your hard-drive.

Hope this helps.

Sorry I have to say that, but regarding the questions you ask, I doubt that you are ready for building an LFS system. Have a look at the prerequisites for LFS, and ask yourself if your knowledge is sufficient for building LFS before going any further.

@janakiramulu: I fully agree with TobiSGD's reply.

I thought I was pretty detailed in post #3 (which also has a link to the LFS liveCD pages).

If you are ready to install LFS, I would suggest you use the LFS liveCD as host.
