Compile error with jhalfs 2.3.1 on 032-linux-headers


I am trying to create an LFS system using JHAlfs. I have done this before manually with no problem, but JHAlfs gives me a Make Error 2 on 032-linux-headers.

Does anyone know why?

(if it helps, the host system I compiled LFS manually from was different to the one I am using now. Could this be a dependency problem?)

What would really help would be if you read section 1.5.3 of the LFS book. You're not providing enough information.

OK, sorry.
The reason I didn't provide the full error message is I didn't think it would be very useful - there wasn't much information in it.
Here it is:
Code:
fahad@fahad-linux:/mnt/build_dir/jhalfs$ make
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
		Executing Cross and Temporary Tools scripts
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[sudo] password for fahad: 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Building target 032-linux-headers
 [++++++-make: *** [032-linux-headers] Error 2                ] 0 min. 6 sec
make: *** [mk_CROSS] Error 2
fahad@fahad-linux:/mnt/build_dir/jhalfs$
It doesn't show the building of the other stuff because I didn't keep the error message the first time.

Oh, and I forgot to mention one thing - I set it to build CLFS, which I didn't do the first time.

You're right, nothing there is really useful. I tried to use JHALFS to build CLFS about 6 or 7 months ago. Didn't work, but I don't remember what the problems were. I don't know if JHALFS creates logs for each package or not. If so, look there for the details of the failed make. Otherwise, I would suggest trying the headers step manually to see if you get an error or if the error is introduced when JHALFS parses the book.
