Not at all, using the old NNS libraries would be if your mother hen machine was running a really old GCC. You did this off of Mandrake 8.0, 8.1? whichever, heck even 7.2 and you're way ahead of needing those. I did mine off of good old Slack 7.1.

Oh, and last night, in a blaze of absolutely no glory at all: I got X to work on my LFS.

Yippee!

Cheers,

Finegan

P.S. I might have missed quite a few follow-ups as my mail server went bazoo yesterday. Actually, my dinko ISP had not one, but both of our nameservers kack.

30 seconds later:

all the mail in que over here at Linuxquestions hit all at once... hehe
Happiness is a warm sendmail

Did you get any errors at the end of install? When you chrooted in, did you make sure /proc was mounted and created the .bash_profile? If there are no errors and you just aren't getting the prompt change i would go back a few steps in the book and see if you missed creating something like the profile....

Hi again,

I got another question.

I,ve deleted all src,s except Linux, and i,m installing Gzip in chapter 6, but it doesnt mention the patch file for Gzip, were those patch files for the first install, or do I have to repatch now?

Thx guys

The book asumes you're recycling patched source. I re-patched. No problems. Did the Glibc I Have No Name thing work out?

Word,

Are you sure about that, hhhmmm i,m wondering

I have doubts because in both chapter 5 and 6 it actually states that you use the patch file for Gcc-2.95.3, and i,m wondering if you only need to patch some files, for static linking?

Below is a list of the patches in each chapter it asks you to do

Chapter 5

Gcc-2.95.3
Gzip-1.2.4a
Sh-utils-2.0
Tar-1.13

Chapter 6

Find-utils-4.1
Gcc-2.95.3
Man-pages-1.43
Tar-1.13

You see, it asks you to patch Gcc-2.95.3 and Tar-1.13 twice but none of the others from chapter 5? and also those 2 packages mentioned are the only ones from chapter 5 that contain an explanation of why they are being patch? so i,m thinking that you dont in fact patch the others in chapter 6 at all, but I dont wanna screw it up coz its takem me ages to get this far lol

So to recap, the only patches in question are the following

Gzip-1.2.4a
Sh-utils-2.0

Anyway, let me know your views on the above

L8rs

Beats me mate. I re-applied every patch, and my LFS is definately severed from the mother hen, and everything since has unpacked and compiled aside from things I was being stupid about. Heck, read the patch! It'll give you a ballpark idea of what its built to do anyway, probably from comments alone.

-Cheers,

As Recoil points out, I too only patched in chapter6 what was asked and left the chapter5 patches be. Mine works fine this way. Finegan re-patched, his works fine THAT way! So what do we say, patch or not to patch. To re-patch can't hurt and not to in my case seems not to have affected anything, so I think you're safe either way. I am at the moment unhappy with Neuro though! I am trying, in vain to get my dircolors working, and it's such a simple task. LOL I could set you up a 50 client network, but this, I am in la la land....So please be kind when (hopefully you do =) ) you give me the oh so dumbarse easy answer.

P.S. And how did the bash prompt thing come out? #2 LOL

Couldnt tell anything from reading the patches, so I just repatched.

Guess what lol

I got another question lol

When installing the Net-tools packages did you answer yes to all questions/accept the defaults or what, obviously I,ve heard of some of the options but not all, so i,m unsure?

Thx again

In the end I took and educated guess and chose default answers to all the questions apart the gettext question (the first one) to which I answered yes.

If its wrong I suppose I can just re-install anyway.

The net-tools package caught me off-gaurd as to having to answer any questions myself, since the book didn't say you'd have to. But I did as you did the first time. But when you reboot, you will most assuredly have modprobe say it can't find modules net-pf-(number). Here is the reason...net-pf faq @ LFS.org

This is due to the kernel and whether or not you built the modules in. I just went ahead and, re-installed a fresh net-tools and chose the options that then fit my machine and voila, no errors.
