chapter 6..reinstall packages


Hello,

I'm now in chapter 6 where I'm trying to reinstall the packages that were installed in chapter 5. I was supposed to delete the packages after i used them in chapter 5 right..? Now i need to get back on the first partition to mount the cdrom and get the files i need....how do I do this? I hope i didnt mess nothin up...

Don't remove the packages themselves, just the source trees.

In other words, remove the bash-2.05a directory once you ran 'make install' on it, but don't remove the bash-2-05a.tar.bz2 file else you'll have to download it again.

If you need to mount a cdrom, the easiest way is just switching to another terminal and do it from there. That way you don't have to exit the chroot'ed environment and then re-enter it when you're done with the cd.

hello,

Thankyou....
the saddest part about this is that i took notes and wrote:
*Remove source 'directory' directly after install*
(except kernel)

(maybe next time i'll *read* the notes first)...
thanks again

well yes remove the source directory (the directory created when you untar a file) not the source file.
