Hi,

Did you manually remount $LFS before you re-started?

Hope this helps.

No I did not,
I tried logging in as lfs user and then checked the environment variable $LFS
it outputs
Code:
lfs@prakash-laptop:~$ echo $LFS
/mnt/lfs
but does not show the folders which i created

You do have to mount it after (re)booting.

Have a look at chapter 2.4. You need to do redo all these steps (expect the mkdir .... command) after each reboot. These commands need to be done as root user.

After remounting $LFS you can become the lfs user and continue with chapter 5.

The moment you arrive at chapter 6 things will be different, but lets finish chapter 5 first

Hope this helps.
