glibc 2.3.4 - make install error - LFS 6.1.1-3
 
Hello. Building Linux From Scratch 6.1.1-3 using the LiveCD, following the handbook page-by-page, latest stable version of everything per LFS, and have run into a bit of a snag. I'm having problems at:

Chapter 6.11. Glibc-2.3.4

When I run make install it will install for about 5 minutes, but error out like so:

Code:

mkdir /usr/info
mkdir: cannot create directory '/usr/info': File exists
make[2]: *** [installdirs] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory '/sources/glibc-2.3.4/manual'
make[1]: *** [manual/subdir_install] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory '/sources/glibc-2.3.4'
make: *** [install] Error 2
root:/sources/glibc-2.3.4/glibc-build$

mkdir: cannot create directory '/usr/info': File exists is the error that I'm getting. /usr/info is a symlink to /share/info, which was previously created here:

Chapter 6.5. Creating Directories

Anyone have any ideas? I did receive this single error when running make -k check >glibc-check-log 2>&1 after make was run on glibc-2.3.4. This error read as:

Code:

make[2]: [/sources/glibc-2.3.4/glibc-build/posix/annexc.out] Error 1 (ignored)
Seeing as it was marked as ignored, I assume this error is unrelated.

Thank you for your help!

Is that a typo or is that really how /usr/info is symlinked on your system? It's supposed to be like this:

Code:

# ls -l /usr/info
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 10 Oct 12  2005 /usr/info -> share/info

Yes, that error can be ignored and is unrelated. My guess is that you somehow mistyped the commands in the creating directories section.

jhuntwork, you were completely right. I type-oed the directories. This time I copied and pasted things over SSH rather than the hand-cranking method, and it compiled perfectly. Thanks for your help!
