error in adjusting tool chain in LFS 6.3


i am building LFS,my distribution is suse linux

now i am in chapter 5.7. Adjusting the Toolchain

http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/...adjusting.html

i got this error
lfs@mallika:/mnt/lfs/sources> mv -v /tools/$(gcc -dumpmachine)/bin/{ld,ld -old}
mv: cannot stat `/tools/i586-suse-linux/bin/ld': No such file or directory
but in my tools i had this


lfs@mallika:/mnt/lfs/tools> ls
bin etc i686-pc-linux-gnu include info lib libexec man sbin share

and my gcc dump machine is
lfs@mallika:/mnt/lfs/sources> gcc -dumpmachine
i586-suse-linux

so i had compiled like this is this correct
lfs@mallika:/mnt/lfs/sources> mv -v /tools/i686-pc-linux-gnu/bin/{ld,ld -old}
`/tools/i686-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld' -> /tools/i686-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld-old'

lfs@mallika:/mnt/lfs/tools> mv -v /tools/bin/{ld-new,ld}
`/tools/bin/ld-new' -> `/tools/bin/ld'
*******************************************************************
so i placed $(gcc -dumpmachine) with i686-pc-linux-gnu is tis correct becoz i tools i found i686-pc-linux-gnu
********************************************************************
lfs@mallika:/mnt/lfs/tools> ln -sv /tools/bin/ld /tools/$(gcc -dumpmachine)/bin/ld
create symbolic link `/tools/i586-suse-linux/bin/ld' to `/tools/bin/ld'
ln: creating symbolic link `/tools/i586-suse-linux/bin/ld' to `/tools/bin/ld': No such file or directory

here i also i got same error so i places i586-suse-linux with i686-pc-linux-gnu ,is this correct

lfs@mallika:/mnt/lfs/tools> ln -sv /tools/bin/ld /tools/i686-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld
create symbolic link `/tools/i686-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld' to `/tools/bin/ld'

Hi,

Well.......... You crosspost: DON'T!!!!

It also looks like you have 2 accounts (seems that you are saritha as well) and also asked this questions as that user (which I'm trying to answer for you).

Big no-no's!!

Reported the duplicate:
Quote:
double post, see:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...fs-6.3-621250/
This one is shorter, close it if you're feeling charitable; else, close the other.
& it was closed before I could post this there!

Given the difference in length, the double post might have been accidental.


The duplicate acct. allegation sounds more serious --

chandra123, is it true? If so, why (or how)?

druuna, yes, serious I believe -- what evidence do you have?

Hi,

3 reasons:

1) lfs@mallika: <- from one of saritha's posts. Same for this post (Nope, this isn't a LFS default host name...),
2) same problem (especially the i586-suse-linux vs i686-pc-linux-gnu part),
3) same use of the english language.

But I'm also aware that this could be coincidence, thats why I used 'looks like' in post #2

I must admit that this p***ed me of at the time. My reply might have been a bit harsh, but I didn't cross the line (correct me if I'm wrong about this).

Anyway, back to the daily routine of answering questions

druuna,
If it were true, it would piss me off too.
No, I don't think you crossed the line.
Thanks for answering.

Are you or aren't aren't you also saritha?
