sda6 -lfs
in my case hard drive number?
As stated in the book(!!): (hdn,m), where n is the hard drive number and m is the partition number.
sda1 would be (hd0,1), sdb3 would be (hd1,3) and sda2 would be (hd0,2)

So: sda6 would be (hd0,6) and not (sda,6)

instead of slap me (your words look like)
What do you expect me to do?
- You still don't have a clue what it is you are doing,
- you don't answer my questions,
- you don't read/understand what's in the book
- and you still do not spell out your words......

Guess we are back to post #35

The word is answer, not ans.
That was pointed out to you many posts before. You still don't care.

If you don't take the time to even try to understand what you are doing making a LFS build is absolutely pointless.

Both options are no use for you. You are not trying to understand what you are doing, and you still have not learned your basics or are looking for a solution in the manuals. If you have a problem with Grub, look into the Grub manuals.
That was pointed out to you many posts before. You still don't care.

That all sums up to one essential sentence: That was pointed out to you many posts before. You still don't care.

So why should we care to help you with a problem you are not even trying to understand?

Congratulations, you just finished building a complete, although still very basic, Linux system. I do hope you learned something along the way.

hi druuna
i just started blfs
today i restarted my system[yesterday i was shutdown it]
on tty1,
janu-lfs login:janu
result
-bash-4.1$ls
result : Downloads, Documents,Pictures
-bash-4.1$mkdir sources
-bash-4.1$cd sources
-bash-4.1$tar -jxf gpm-1.20.6.tar.bz2 ///from tty2 i copeid gpm package to /home/janu/sources
--bash-4.1$cd gpm-1.20.6
--bash-4.1$pwd
result below
/home/janu/sources/gpm-1.20.6
-bash-4.1$ ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc &&
>make
-bash-4.1$ here i typed as you said in thread [post no-2]
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...6-blfs-869256/

make install &&
install-info --dir-file=/usr/share/info/dir /usr/share/info/gpm.info &&
ln -v -s libgpm.so.2.1.0 /usr/lib/libgpm.so &&

install -v -m644 conf/gpm-root.conf /etc &&
install -v -m755 -d /usr/share/doc/gpm-1.20.6 &&
chmod -v 755 doc/{changes,support} &&

chmod -v 644 doc/{changes/*,support/*,FAQ,HACK_GPM,README*} &&
cp -v -R doc/{FAQ,HACK_GPM,README*,changes,support} /usr/share/doc/gpm-1.20.6

result: is errors like below
make[1]:***[install] Error1
make:***[do-install]Error1
-bash-4.1$

is that mistake by typing or anything
[i use only one space between command and &&]
any idea?
thanks

Hi,

That info is in the BLFS book: Notes on Building Software Especially this part Building Software as an Unprivileged (non-root) User

PS: Can you start a new thread if you any more questions, this isn't LFS (or more specific: changing ownership) specific. Can you also put up the [SOLVED] tag for this thread.
