LFS chapter-by-chapter complete commands with notes


I did a successful build earlier last month, and this weekend I did another one. Something I really would have liked was a complete set of all commands that I could just cut-and-paste, so here it is.

In addition to having all of the commands (e.g. extracting source files) in a simple location to cut-and-paste from, I've added additional notes that I found useful along the way. I also made a few changes I found potentially useful like tee-ing output of many build commands so to review later for tracing errors.

I'm also including the .config files for both the vmware and virtualbox kernel configuration.

Hi DrinkinHomeBrew,

Very nice of you to create and post this, some might find this handy.

A few remarks:
Quote:
Don't use 64-bit for the initial host, since it causes issues in the build
This isn't true for the recent LFS versions. I've been building LFS on 64 bit (multilib) systems without any problems.

I also notice you use the su command and not the su - command. The latter might be preferable because that one set a full root environment.

Quote:
ln -sf /bin/bash /bin/sh
You need to remove the link to dash before you create the link to bash.

Quote:
# ================================================

### Read Me

### To restart the process from this point (I didn't do this, so I don't know the process)
### ?? Remove all directories in $LFS except: lost+found, sources. Copy /tools from /root/lfs-tools ??
### ?? Anything else ??
The safest way to restart with chapter 6 is to create a backup of all that is done up to and including chapter 5.
As root user:
Code:
cd $LFS/..
tar jcf lfs.7.tmpenv.tar.bz2 lfs
If, for whatever reason you need to re-start with chapter 6 (as root user):
Code:
cd $LFS/..
rm -rf lfs
tar jxf lfs.7.tmpenv.tar.bz2
About using make's -jX option: The only time I had problems using it was when testing (make check/test) some packages.

Again: Nice job!

PS: I did not check each and every command, so other small issues might still be present.

Thanks for the feedback.

I took out the 64-bit statement because, in hindsight, that was from the first time I tried on a pre-7.0 version that I never completed. So I'll take your word for it that this is no longer an issue.

I'll try your other suggestions and update it. I really like the idea of making a tar archive of sources and tools instead of copying them as I've been doing. Probably a more efficient way to back those files up. Also, unlinked from dash before linking to bash wasn't necessary since the force switch does it automatically. At least in Mint it worked.

I'm going to build it a few more times, so I'll update it as I go along.
