Well I was going about installing LFS. I got up to installing Glibc, which is part 5.6 of the LFS manual. When I tried to extrac glibc-2.3.4.tar.bz2 it said this:
bzip2: No space left on device
This is strange. I created a 2 GB partition for LFS, because I just wanted a really minimal install. Does installing LFS really take up this much space? If yes, how much space do you estimate it will take to complete the installation and install a few other things, like X and fluxbox?
And also, is there a way to resize a partition using fdisk or something like that without losing the data, because I'd rather not spend 2 hours recompiling gcc, binutils, etc., etc. (The filesystem is ext2 by the way).
Thanks for your help.
