Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Here is my config.log file contents......pls do help friends...........
**************************CONFIG.LOG STARTS HERE*******************************
This file contains any messages produced by compilers while
running configure, to aid debugging if configure makes a mistake.
It was created by GNU C Library configure (see version.h), which was
generated by GNU Autoconf 2.59. Invocation command line was

there is either something wrong with your temp system gcc build or you made a mistake chrooting. try to chroot again and see if that helps, also, make sure you can run /tools/bin/gcc without errors ( do the sanity check).
well there is no file "/tools/bin/gcc", but it is a directory there!....is this a mistake or is that i missed some steps here??....the gcc version is 3.4.1 given along with LFS Packages...but it seems this version of gcc is error prone and i had logged all my works on lfs and that indicates that i had done every step as mentioned in the LFS 6 Docs....so downloading the latest versions of GCC,Binutils and GLibc would help??..or is it that this version itself i can continue and rebuild the LFS 6.0??...
My base system is FC-3 and it is using GCC-3.4.2...
i would be happy if someone could help me out in this..
yep, gcc is a directory and not a binary..and i tried rebuilding gcc of chapter-5 but am not able to succeed..it is throwing some compilation problems...........so i have restarted my LFS work......and am sticking along with LFS Package versions itself...........
friends,throw ur views in this topic becoz if u search the forum,u would find this topic to be discussed but always with no answer............if we can get what is the reason behind this, then it would be helpful to the community.....
seems that i've encounter the same problem, so i restart my lfs work n got that problem again for three times..then it's work..seem's that if u don't erase the source of package after u install it, it will affect the chroot env..
so after install, just erase it unless u don't have to do that, look the remainder..
