Question LFS-Installation Patches?


Hey,

i have just one short question. I am to install LFS at the moment. I'm at chapter 5.4 (installing gcc) and i downloaded a patch called gcc-4.0.3-specs-1.patch. What should i do with it, or is it not important to install patches at this moment? I didnt find an answer...

greetings,

Mischka

Hi,

If a specific chapter in the book does not mention installing a patch: Don't.
This specific test is used in step 2 (5.11. GCC-4.0.3 - Pass 2).

Hope this clears things up.
