One final error!, well maybe two


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
Code:
cat > /etc/sysconfig/clock << "EOF"
# Begin /etc/sysconfig/clock

UTC=1

# End /etc/sysconfig/clock
EOF
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!

Can't possibly help without seeing the error and your fstab...

I fixed the clock one. There was a file named console with the code for clock in it, so I just renamed that console file to clock and it worked.

This allowed a command to be displayed (less lines used because of the "red text") just above the "FAIL" on the swap partition line giving a command to fix the partitiom problem.

It works a treat now!
