lfs chapter 6.11 Binutils-2.16.1 make problems

Hi, ive gotten to chapter 6.11 with no problems yet, but now ive hit a bump in the road...

When I started chapter 6.11 i did the usual expect command and got the pty error - (hadnt happened before but i fixed it by lookin at some hints and redoing a few previous steps)
I then made the directory binutils-build, then configured binutils file. No problems.

when i run the make tooldir=/usr command it doesnt get far and throws up a few errors: cant open shared object file: no such file or directory
make[1]: *** [libiberty.a] Error 127
make: *** [all-libiberty] Error 2

ive removed the binutils directory and untared the files again and redid the steps, but still the same errors. I have no idea what to do. ive tried lookin around the net, at hints, but no luck.

Also ill mention that in re-adjusting the toolchain i didnt get all the outputs, although there were no errors.

im running the lfs livecd as host, and its on a pentium 3, if its any help.

Thanks for any help!

ok, I guess there isnt an easy solution. I tried retaking some steps and some other ideas. Still coming up with the error.

Im just gonna try and restart the whole of chapter 6. Does anybody have any idea on how to remove what I have already done so i can try a fresh install? I know how to do some parts, but im not so sure on the /tools dir if i need to remove anything there...

Anyway ciao, thanks,

Well I haven't seen that error but...

Also ill mention that in re-adjusting the toolchain i didnt get all the outputs, although there were no errors.
Could you give more detail here, as I think this could be the problem. It is fairly vital to readjust the toolchain correctly, all sorts of problems occur if it isn't done to the letter.

About restarting chapter 6 (probably a good idea), /tools should be the same as it was at the end of chapter 5 (provided there were no unfortunate typos) so removing everything except /tools and /sources should be fine.

Good Luck

Hi, well the first time round it just didnt print out what the guide said; it didnt print out anything infact, no errors.

Anyway, I went back - after i made this thread- and redid the steps from part 6.7. When I got to the toolchain part I got all the expected outputs from the guide, but unfortuneatly the original problem was still there.

So it looks like back to chapter 6.1
