Hi freegianghu,

Tks for your script.

Quote:
To delete all extracted directories, run script like:
Code:
for input in `ls` ; do
  if [ -d $input ]; then
    echo "Removing $input" && rm -rf $input
  fi
done
I suppose it is a bash script. The script will look like
Code:
#!/bin/bash
for input in `ls` ; do
  if [ -d $input ]; then
    echo "Removing $input" && rm -rf $input
  fi
done
and save it to
/mnt/lfs/home/abc.sh

Not on the Host FC3.

Then
chmod +x abc.sh

Leave all package-tarballs and patches in $LFS/sources. If I'm wrong please correct me.

TIA

B.R.

You are right!!! You must be sure that you are in $LFS/sources before running this script.
Code:
#!/bin/bash

cd $LFS/sources && 
{
  for input in `ls` ; do
    if [ -d $input ]; then
      echo "Removing $input" && rm -rf $input
    fi
  done 
}
Cheers,
GH
