Error encountered in LFS v6.0 Ch. 4 .bash_profile
Can anyone help me? I loaded Red Hat Fedora on my system, then followed v. 6.0 of the LFS book up to Chapter 4.4, Setting up the Environment. When I set up the two profile files, I am unable to log into Fedora with the new userid I created for LFS. I've narrowed the problem down to the one line in .bash_profile,
exec env -i HOME=$HOME TERM=$TERM PS1='\u:\w\$ ' /bin/bash
When I try to log on with this line in .bash_profile, Fedora tells me that my logon lasted less than 10 seconds, along with some error about "X", and keeps me at the logon screen. I can actually logon in what I believe is Failsafe Mode, but that just gives me a small terminal window in the bottom right-hand corner.
Has anyone heard of this problem before? Should I just try to continue on through Chapter five and try to construct a temporary system from my little terminal window in Failsafe mode?
