Clarification request on the instructions for chapter 5.9 binutils pass 2
Hi again all.
Can someone please help me understand the instructions a bit better in this section? All the previous sections up to this point have been completed successfully.
The instructions say to create a separate build directory again, called binutils-build. There were no instructions (AFAIK) to remove the previous binutils-build directory created during pass 1, so my directory still exists in the $LFS/sources folder.
So, do I remove the first binutils-build directory before proceeding? Using the note on general installation instructions, I assumed that the instructions wanted me to untar the package, cd into $LFS/sources/binutils-2.22 (the directory created after untarring) and then execute the command to create a new binutils-build folder, which I cannot do at this point, since one already exists. I did not untar the package again, since I had already untarred it, but I did switch to the sources directory before trying to run the command to create the binutils-build directory a second time.
What am I missing?
