Changing ownership 6.4 chown fails.
I am working on my first lfs system and have been able to get to chapter 6 in the book version 6.0. I mounted all the file system and can chroot into the system. When I got to the point where it says to change '/tools' permissions to user root, I type the command 'chown -R 0:0 /tools' hit enter and nothing happens. I let the computer run thinking it was slow, but nothing. I tried the command in terminals and in consoles on X and nothing. I even tried to ls the system when I first entered and it gave me the folders inside and then nothing, it did not return me to 'I have no name' prompt. I even decided to skip changing ownership and entered the first install -d command and nothing same as if I chown.
I had no problems before this everything was going great. Well anyway I think everyone in advance for any help.
