Few Questions ....If you all can help me understand before step 5.7 (LFS 6.8)


Hi ,
(I have just completed till LFS 6.8 section 5.6.1. Installation of Linux API Headers on SUSE 11.3 ).

Just before installing LINUX API headers , i had a look in my $LFS/tools directory and got following folders:-
Code:
a)bin
b)i686-lfs-linux-gnu
c)include
d)lib
e)libexec 
f)share
Can you all please let me know which steps of LFS installation created which folder......
and
Is there any method to know if they are proper
(Not getting error while installation ,did prove that it is ok).But still is there any details which i can check now , so as i am sure that i am on correct track .......
(Just for curiosity)

Thank You

At the bottom of each page, it gives a link to later in the book. Then at the bottom of that page it lists the dirs & files it installs, although i,m not sure where you are at the moment if it matters a great deal, as you redo all the packages again.

your on the right track
include is the api headers
i686-lfs-linux-gnu

the other folders are binutils
