problems after rebooting the system!!


Our lfs system is finally up and running but with a few errors-:

1) Our promt is coming as -bash-3.00$ and when a user logs in to the system the promt is -sh-3.00$ and it's working directory is /.

2) We tried to correct the error but could not find bash_profile.

3)Some of the commands like find and locate are not working even though no error occured while installing findutils.

4)Shutdown command is not working.Even if we give 1 min time along with it it goes into the maintainance mode.

5) Whenever we add a user it is not formed in the home directory.

6)Mail is not working.

Congratulation, it's time have a look @ After LFS Configuration Issues. That page will help you how to get shell prompt, system profile, add user config, ....

All others problem should be posted after configuration

Cheers,

At least half those problems will be fixed by doing the section called adding users in the BLFS handbook.

Set up the stuff in /etc/skel according to the book, that will make it so the user automatically gets .bash* files.

useradd -m username
will make the user's home directory.
