getting started in chroot environment


Hi, I'm getting reading to start the chroot environment and this is my problem:

gentoo lfs # chroot "$LFS" /tools/bin/env -i \
> HOME=/root TERM="$TERM" PS1='\u:\w\$ ' \
> PATH=/bin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin:/tools/bin \
> /tools/bin/bash --login +h
chroot: cannot change root directory to : No such file or directory


Any suggestions?

My thoughts exactly. It looks like you've not set the variable $LFS to point to your LFS partition.
