It's a bit confusing that part about where to make the directory.
The book says " The binutils documentation recomends building binutils outside of the source directory in a dedicated build directory"
So I made a directory outside of the sources directory in the
root directory then copied the tar file to that directory
and decompressed it and built it in that directory
You are saying that I should decompress it in the $LFS/sources
and issue the mkdir command from there ?
Why am I getting Permission denied ?
I can do it as root but not as lfs
