File upload lost in space


From the book chapter 3 I uploaded files and patches:

wget ftp://ftp.lfs-matrix.net/pub/lfs/lfs...ckages-7.2.tar -P $LFS/sources
--2013-01-22 07:43:40-- ftp://ftp.lfs-matrix.net/pub/lfs/lfs...ckages-7.2.tar
=> `/sources/lfs-packages-7.2.tar'
Resolving ftp.lfs-matrix.net (ftp.lfs-matrix.net)... 208.97.140.69
Connecting to ftp.lfs-matrix.net (ftp.lfs-matrix.net)|208.97.140.69|:21... connected.

100%[======================================>] 306,821,120 30.6K/s in 1h 46m

2013-01-22 09:30:35 (46.7 KB/s) - `/sources/lfs-packages-7.2.tar' saved [306821120]


I checked the sources folder and it's empty.

Where did it go and why? How do I get it back?

When you checked the sources folder what command did you use?

Try this

Code:
echo $LFS
This will tell you where the sources directory is for example:

Code:
>echo $LFS
/mnt/lfs
>ls /mnt/lfs/sources
lfs-packages-7.2.tar
