GCC second pass


I'm at the stage of the second pass for gcc. I know this probably sounds like a dumb question but the first step is to issue the command

Code:
expect -c "spawn ls"
I'm not sure what directory I'm supposed to be in for this. Help!

Thanks

Hi,

as far as I know, you don't need to be in any particular directory, that command line will only tell you 'spawn ls' if you applied the patch correctly and... if not the case, it will complain about no more availabe PTY's, but your current location into the directory tree... that's not relevant, at least for me it works wheter I'm into glibc-build, gcc-build or just.. $LFS/sources

Well the problem is I get command not found whenever I try to run it. And I've gone back over the steps to see if I missed something and I can't find anything wrong.

if the system can't find a suitable command it's likely something gone wrong with installing expect, so the only advice I can give to you is to re-check that part of the book...

Well I went back and redid it following the directions to a t and it still doesn't work. So I'm stuck since this is a critical part of the installation. Any suggestions?

Did you install tcl && expect? Could you find expect in $PATH? Reinstall these packages once more as LFS book suggest

Good luck,
GH

If it's not found in PATH, then it either isn't installed or it was installed wrong (wrong prefix maybe?) Good luck fixing you're problem- I'm still in the middle of mine :P
