Hi,

Have a look at this thread: error compiling glibc under Mint 12 (especially post #10 and onward).

In short: Ububtu isn't suitable as host due to the use of eglibc (check the output of version-check.sh).

I would advise to use a different host (Debian and Slackware are good candidates).

Hope this helps.

I've never used the Debian liveCD. But as long as you make sure the (minor) changes that are needed to make Debian compliant as host are done I don't see why not. It does have a possible downside: You need to implement these changes every time you stop and start (also true for a few parts of LFS).

If at all possible I would suggest not using a liveCD, makes life a lot easier (especially if this is your first LFS build).

Hope this helps.

Yes, you can boot multiple OS's (assuming you have enough HD space).

There is one thing you need to be aware of: Only one of your OS's takes care of the multi-booting!! I assume that in your case this is done by Ubuntu using grub. If you install a third OS, make sure the bootloader of that new OS isn't installed/activated!! After installing, say, Debian you need to boot into Ubuntu and run sudo grub-update. If all went well you now have an extra entry (Debian) when (re)booting.

Most, if not all, Linux distro's ask you about this during the installation process. Debian does for sure. Carefully check all that mentions Grub, MBR or bootloader during the installation and make sure these options are unchecked (they are on by default).

After the installation is finished, the newly installed flavor will not yet be visible/accessible when booting. You need to boot into Ubuntu first, run the command given in my previous post (sudo grub-update), this will pick up the new bootable OS and create an entry for it. Now a third entry is present when you (re)boot.

Hope this helps.
