Problem with making a new LFS system
 
I ran into a small problem when I was trying to make a LFS system.

Once all the packages were downloaded it said that it was out of space.

Well then it hit me how on earth am I supposed to make the LFS system if I have no way to store it?

I booted it off real hardware using a LFS CD so using the CD-Rom drive was out of the option.

I tried to use a USB flash drive but no matter what I did it refused to mount it.


How are you supposed to burn the new LFS system if there is nothing to burn it to?

Also I had a little bit of trouble with permissions because about half way threw it logged me out of the root user and into jhalfs and then said that jhalfs didn't have the permissions to enter the build folder.

Well I tried to give jhalfs permission to but I had to be on the root user and it simply refused to let me log into the root user because I didn't have a password and it wouldn't let me type one.

I really am having a hard time with this LFS Live CD.

Hi,

What are you actually trying to do?

The LFS liveCD is a starting point for building a LFS system. Download it, burn it to disk and boot from it. The only other thing you need is one (or more depending on your whishes) free partitions on your HD. That's where you install/build your LFS system.

No burning to CD needed.

... what does it say when you attempt to mount things?

Code:

export FLASHDRIVE=/mnt/flashdrive
mkdir -pv $FLASHDRIVE
mount -v -t (nfts/msdos/ext2/ext3) /dev/sdX $FLASHDRIVE

should work...

I was trying to make my own Linux version because it would be a great programming experience for me.

I am using a host PC as the build host for my new LFS system but I can't put it on the HDD because Its my parents computer.

I am using my parents computer because its 2 times faster then my laptop.

When I try to make a new directory with mkdir it says I am out of disk space and refuses to.

Also it says that all the LFS packages are on the LFS CD but where are they?

As I stated before: You do need some hd space to build LFS, you cannot build it on (another) cd/dvd.

You are kidding, right??

Thats to bad..

I found out where the packages are on the CD I just wasn't looking in the right places.

actually, don't you have to download the packages?...

@cynicalpsycho: Not if you DL the liveCD, they are included (LFS that is, not BLFS).

Actually if you have the new livecds you have the option of no src (I use this because I want to build LFS 6.4 not 6.3)
