It,s no good if you get errors to proceed.
There is a reason for the errors is that something has gone wrong, with either the package you are on or previous 1's

I've been looking to another guide, with more detailed instructions, are there any? Or is there someone around here, who wants to give me support via msn or something that would be great. I think this guide has to do much more with details about which path you are right now etc.

I have done LFS several times. Once you build the toolchain error free, i.e. glibc, gcc and kernel headers) in Ch.5, you can do ch. 5 & ch 6 toolchain. Once you build that toolchain error free you can do the rest. That's a condition for putting up the stable book.

You're probably here after fruitless mails on lq itself. YOUR machine/distro doesn't measure up if you can't get that far. If you want to moan, go ahead. If you want people to cast an eye over your problems, you have to show us. No make -k; when a build fails, hit up arrow & return and catch the first error. That's all we need to see.

Your right, I've found a nice guy who wants to give me some support via MSN, when we both haven't an idea to come further I'm going back to here. Thanks for the support so far.

Look, I'm getting this kind of erros:

make[3]: Leaving directory `/mnt/react/binutils-build/bfd/po'
make[3]: Entering directory `/mnt/react/binutils-build/bfd/po'
make[3]: Nothing to be done for `info'.
make[3]: Leaving directory `/mnt/react/binutils-build/bfd/po'
make[3]: Entering directory `/mnt/react/binutils-build/bfd'
make[3]: Nothing to be done for `info-am'.
make[3]: Leaving directory `/mnt/react/binutils-build/bfd'
make[2]: *** [info-recursive] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/mnt/react/binutils-build/bfd'
make[1]: *** [all-bfd] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/mnt/react/binutils-build'
make: *** [all] Error 2

Note the Make *** [all] ERROR 2, is this a problem?

Hi,

You need to include the actual error (as explained here: 1.5 Help (1.5.3)).

And: Yes, that is a problem. But without the error we cannot point you to any possible solution.

EDIT: Also include the exact command(s) you used in this chapter to get to this point.

@Sjors-rw:
As a general yardstick, most threads are sorted in under 7 posts. This is 32 posts - most of your LQ history. There's no point unless you give exact errors. When a compile fails,
1. Hit up arrow & return
2. Post the _first_ error. You posted the last ones.
3. If you can't see the first error run 'make > file 2>&1' and check the file with less.

so you mean this one:

make[3]: *** [bfd.info] Error 1
make[2]: *** [info-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: *** [all-bfd] Error 2
make: *** [all] Error 2

The commands I used are exactly the same as from the book:

mkdir -v ../binutils-build
cd ../binutils-build

../binutils-2.22/configure --target=$LFS_TGT \
--prefix=/tools \
--disable-nls \
--disable-werror

Did you actually read 1.5.3?

It also includes a link to a page you should definitely read!

WARNING: `makeinfo' is missing on your system. You should only need it if
you modified a `.texi' or `.texinfo' file, or any other file
indirectly affecting the aspect of the manual. The spurious
call might also be the consequence of using a buggy `make' (AIX,
DU, IRIX). You might want to install the `Texinfo' package or
the `GNU make' package. Grab either from any GNU archive site.

So this code? Can I assume I'm missing makeinfo and that's the problem?

I am now at: 5.5 and stuck on the latest command, getting this error:

No command '-gcc' found, did you mean:
Command 'cgcc' from package 'sparse' (multiverse)
Command 'gcc' from package 'gcc' (main)
Command 'gcc' from package 'pentium-builder' (universe)
-gcc: command not found
`./libgcc.a' -> `libgcc.a'

with this command: ln -vs libgcc.a `$LFS_TGT-gcc -print-libgcc-file-name | sed 's/libgcc/&_eh/'`

Hi

I know you have been getting problems,
Did you make sure your host system was compliant, as texinfo is 1 of the dependencies, and what host are you using.
