Angry lfs problem


I am having trouble compiling glibc-2.2.5 I get the error:
make[2] ***** No rule to make target 'subdir_lib. Stop.
Leaving directory '/usr/src/lfs-packages-3.3/glibc-2.2.5/login'
make[1] ***** [login/subdir_lib] Error 2

I have tried everything wondering if anyone could help or had the same problem?
thanks.

You most likely made a mistake when running these two commands:

cp login/Makefile login/Makefile.backup &&
sed 's/root/0/' login/Makefile.backup > login/Makefile


Just run that sed again, it'll read from the proper Makefile.backup file and output to the login/Makefile file.

If you had an error in the cp line, then there isn't a proper Makefile backup file. What you need to do is remove the glibc-build and glibc-2.2.5 directories and start over again with the Glibc installation.
