LFS 6.2-3 chp. 5.4 GCC-4.0.3 compile error
I am trying to build LFS for the second time in my Linux explorations. I'm a somewhat of a newbie. I've been using SimplyMEPIS 6.0 for the last month or so and I'm starting to get the hang of playing around in Linux a lot better. I've already created my own shell script for the Chapter 5 environment for use with the LFS live CD, as I'm using that as my host. I've been using the hint for using the live cd from 6.1 as my guide and the 6.2 stable book. I've gotten the ls to come up in all color in the "clean environment" the same way that it does in the "normal environment" just to give you some hint that I'm not a "total loss newbie" or anything, lol.
I've gotten binutils pass1 to build correctly, even though I've gone through this part like 45 times in the last 2 days. Needless to say, I almost have everything I need to type in memory and barely need to look at the book. binutils has failed a couple of times on me, but at the moment has been compiled and installed without errors. But when I try to compile gcc I can't get more than 15 minutes into the build process, which going by SBU's should take me approximately 72 minutes. The last 3 times I've tried compiling I've run into segfaults. Twice at regex.o and once at toplevel.o. On other build attempts I've come across different errors, and forgive my tiredness, I can't remember exactly what they are.
I was wondering if after the error I have to rm the build directory and start over from making the build directory or is it possible for me to type make bootstrap at the prompt again. I tried that a couple times to see what it would do, and it looked like it started off from where it left off, but I'm not sure. How do I get past this?
I'm running a 766MHz PIII, 512MB 133MHz SDRAM, 80GB WD Caviar, 523MB Swap. I'm already dual booting Windows ME (which I never use) and SimplyMEPIS and wanting to add LFS to that mix as well. I've searched this for the last two days, and can't search LFS's mailing lists for this because the search is broken??? and can't connect to the IRC network either. I'm at a total loss, which is why I'm asking here. It's my last resort.
Thank you for any help,
