"File not found" Error on booting LFS 7.2
 
I completed doing LFS 7.2 as per the book. (Host system : Ubuntu 12.04)


For creating the configuration file ,I edited the /boot/grub/grub.cfg:

Then I restarted the system. The GRUB had option for LFS 7.2, along with the old ones, ubuntu and windows7.


On selecting LFS7.2, I get the error "File not found".

If I understand you correctly then you added the lfs entry yourself.

Try, from your Ubuntu host as root user, to execute the update-grub command. This should find lfs and create an appropriate entry in grub.cfg. You might want to remove the entry you manually added first.

Veena_Gecw 12-05-2012 12:24 AM

Thanks.. I configured grub using update-grub. Now i restarted and selected the option for lfs from the grub menu. Then i got a black screen with the following error messages.

/proc /sys /devmount: unknown filesystem type 'devtmps'
cp: cannot create directory '/dev/pts':Read-only file system
ln: failed to create symbolic link '/dev/shm':Read-only file system

checking file system...fsck.ext3:No such file or directory while trying to open /dev/sda4

More info is needed to trouble-shoot this.

- The first error (unknown filesystem type 'devtmps') could point to a missing kernel setting. Did you check/set the appropriate kernel options?
- Are there any, earlier, message during boot indicating that partitions are mounted read-only?
- From your host: What does the grub entry for LFS look like?
- From your host: What is the output of fdisk -l and please point out which partition(s) you used to build LFS.
- From LFS: Post the content of /etc/fstab

BTW: Please put your script/data inside [code] ... [/code] tags. If you don't know how: LQ - BB Code List.

How can i check whether i set kernel options appropriately?

The posted output seems to be OK.

The tmpfs setting can be found here:
--> File systems --> Pseudo filesystems --> Tmpfs entries

Also have a look at this (the Note): 8.3. Linux-3.5.2

Veena_Gecw 12-05-2012 04:49 AM

i cant find pseudo filesystems inside file systems.

Where are you looking?
Code:

cd /path/to/linux-3.5.2
make menuconfig

File systems --> Pseudo filesystems --> Tmpfs entries

The entries are there, I double checked.

If these entries are not set then you need to rebuild the kernel as explained in chapter 8.3.1

Veena_Gecw 12-05-2012 05:55 AM

I checked for pseudo filesystem inside both ubuntu file system and lfs.

Can u give me the exact path.

This is kernel specific and LFS specific (no need to check your host).

(Re)do the steps in this chapter: 8.3. Linux-3.5.2

After executing the make menuconfig step you are presented with a menu. That's where you need to look.

BTW: How did you create your initial kernel? I do hope you did do 8.3. Linux-3.5.2 and you did not copy a kernel from your host (which will _not_ work!!).

Veena_Gecw 12-05-2012 10:15 PM

Do i need to do anything before re doing chapter 8.3??

Only the steps you normally do when restarting/continuing with the build after a shutdown. Described here: chapter 6.65

- Section 6.2.2, “Mounting and Populating /dev”,
- Section 6.2.3, “Mounting Virtual Kernel File Systems”,
- enter the chroot environment (as shown in 6.65).

Now you are ready to redo 8.3.1
