Resume LFS build at chapter 7 using book 7.2


Hi all. I recently started a build of LFS (book 7.2) after a few half harted attempts a good while ago. I left my computer on for days so i could keep my place and, well i'm not looking forward to my electricity bill!
So i finished chapter 6 and shutdown my computer.

I'm using slackware (14.00 i beleive it is?) for the hosts system, and when i mount my hard drive where i've been building my LFS system and chroot to it etc etc, i type uname -a and it gives me the host system still.

I'm REALLY new to building LFS and want to make sure i can continue the build as it took me 4 days to get this far.

What i'm asking is, can anyone tell me the exact steps (or better yet commands) to resume my build from the very beginning of chapter 7 (book 7.2)

Thanks in advance,
Alastair

Hi

So I presume you have a mountpoint for lfs at /mnt/lfs, make sure it is mounted with mount command.
log in as root check that lfs is in the path echo $LFS
Then do parts 6.2.2 through to end of page.
Then chroot in chapter 6.65

You should be in the lfs root dir now, I have never run the uname command when at this point.
