It took 4 attempts and a few days but I finally got it finished.
Though there are issues im not sure how to go about fixing, Im hoping someone could help me out a little....
One is to do with the swap partition failing. Possibly a /etc/fstab error. I doubt I did that wrong though.
The other is some horrible red text... basically it cant find
/etc/rc.d/rcsysinit.d/s60setclock line17 etc/sysconfig/clock
Maybe I didnt enter
cat > /etc/sysconfig/clock << "EOF"
# Begin /etc/sysconfig/clock
# End /etc/sysconfig/clock
And lastly did the book give an instruction to delete the lfs user? On the bash prompt after boot I can only login as root. I expected lfs to still be there.
Many Thanks for getting me so far! Talk about a crash course in Linux!
