LFS Faq Good info! And have some more ?


For anyboby that is new and don't know there is a good faq page at ...lfs from scratch faq
that answers alot of ? you might have. I had to reinstall gcc from $LFS again to get the static link set to install Glib from chroot I had to change permissions on some files from root to user lfs and reinstall it and then reapply chroot before installing Glib. If I have to do this again is there a easy way to change the ownership from root to $LFS ? I used the commands in ch#6 to change them all back to root in one shot.Hope this is making sence. One more ? while compiling and installing programs is it ok to go about your business on your comp? I mean lite stuff like surfing email

Changing ownership from 'root' back to the 'lfs' user, run the exact same command you found earlier in chapter 5: chown -R lfs $LFS

Yes, you can use your computer while things are compiling. No problem at all there.
