Well I followed the book -- exactly. Is that why this error is occurring? Because I failed to follow the book exactly? Because I did not take care to set up the environment properly? Where could I have gone wrong? Could it have been in the part where I was told to create directories as no particular user and then to create a new lfs user and oh, I guess I had to change the permissions, but the book didn't say to do that, should I have not done that and then posted errors about permissions not being available to the lfs user?
In other words, following the book <b>exactly</b> doesn't seem to be the healthiest way to go about this project. So really, I'm not cutting down your support because I am happy you responded, but I am not exactly satisfied with the answer "Format and RTFM, nub"
PS Sorry for being so belligerent
