Reason for following the "MENTIONED tar installation sequence" in LFS 6.8


Hi All,

Can you please let me know why this particular sequence of tar file installation was decided.

Like , i know with my error's that file like BISON , FLEX, GNU C++ etc file should be present before installation of BINUTILS package.
so
On same line , wanted to know what is the reason for the sequence mentioned in LFS book .

(I am building LFS for the first time , so might be for some this question might look inappropriate. Apology for that .....)
But i am curious for the same......

(I have just completed till LFS 6.8 section 5.6.1. Installation of Linux API Headers on SUSE 11.3 ).

At a guess your asking why things are installed in a certain order. Programs require dependencies from previous packages, otherwise they will not biuld correctly or fail to build.
If you carry on to BLFS this is easier to see, if you pick a package it then list all depdndencies requided for that package.

I hope this is what your asking.

Thanks spiky0011 ,
Yes true. But that's what i wanted to know "Which Package is dependent on which previous package for it's installation" ......
Because roughly we r having 60 packages in total ....And about 30 we are using in chapter 5.

Thanks

I,m not sure which procise package is dependent on what but they are all needed. Have a look at BLFS that dose list required pa,kages for what package you want to install.
