linux from scratch


If you go through some of my old posts on here you would see that i have tried to install lfs before . And i keep having problems in this same spot on the book . And the only actual help people gave then was trying to tell me to follow the book and if it doesnt work then i need to go learn how to use linux then come back . So yea I found that remark very insulting . Because i followed the book before With problems in the same spot . And there shouldnt be any reason for it because I did copy the commands directly from the book . I am tired of being told i need to learn something . If the commands in the book arent working the way they are suppose to .

In order for us to help you you need to post some relevant information first:

- which LFS version are you trying to build (6.3, 7.2, SVN)?
- which host is being used (incl. version)?
- is the host made compliant (post output of version-check.sh script)?
- which chapter is giving you problems (binutils?),
- the exact command used,
- the exact error message.

Without the above we cannot help you and we can only give you general advise.

Except for LFS 6.5 all the LFS versions work and no changes/additions to the books are needed. The most common errors I've seen over the years are these:
- host is not compliant, (most common error by far),
- deviations from the book,
- misunderstanding the build process / not reading all the instructions,
- typo's.

LFS is all about details.

None. Unless it is a recent LFS build.

We need specific information. Smart thing to do right now: Wait until you get access to your other pc so you can post some details.

The prerequistes command was about the topic that you may lack the necessary knowledge. If the lack of knowledge in one specific topic is what you think make people idiots then your world must be full of idiots, since anyone lacks the knowledge in one specific topic. That is more insulting than my link to the prerequisites site, IMHO.

But anyways, let's wait until you post the asked info.

I'm using this CD

Hi, I don't know if you will be able to use this cd or not. I'm using it to build the latest stable release. It is built with multilib and supports 32 & 64 bit builds.

the cd can be found at w w w.l f s c r i p t.o r g / l a t e s t.i s o

I'm using it on a seperate PC, by mount the HDD directly from the CD without installing the OS from the CD.

If the recipient has PM/Mail enabled: Click on user name in the left block -> Select Send ... in menu that appears.

Or, from someone's profile: The Contact Info tab.

* Note that not everyone may be willing to answer questions via PM. Technical questions should be asked in the forum anyway to benefit the whole of LQ.
