Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm taking my first stab at Linux from scratch and trying to ease into cross compiling by using the same platform (x86_64) for both my target and host. I have been able to configure the 184.108.40.206 kernel headers, build binutils 2.18, and get a "boot" version of the gcc c compiler. I'm now trying to build glibc 2.7 and getting the following error:

Reason: changing notifications
If you're building on or for an x86_64 platform, I would recommend Cross Linux from Scratch (multilib) --> http://trac.cross-lfs.org/. The development version of the book is stable for x86_64 right now; other architectures aren't yet.
Since you're not following the instructions as written in the LFS book, it's difficult to say what your actual problem is. How have you deviated from the instructions other than what is obvious from what you have posted?
This thread is 3.5 years old and LFS has changed a lot since back then.
Please start a new thread and give us your specific information:
- LFS version you are trying to build,
- the host you are using (is it compliant?),
- the chapter you have trouble building,
- the error shown (and at least 5 to 10 lines before the error),
- anything that you might think is relevant.
