Unable Log-in any longer as LFS User


After completing chapter 4.3 successfully(?), setting up my LFS group account with myself as user, I was readily able to log in via su - lfs. I then proceeded, still as lfs user, to chapter 4.4, which dealt with setting up the environment. All this also apparently proceeded OK. However, afterward, I was no long able to log into the system as a lfs user, via su - lsf. When I put in my new password, I got the following response: "env: TERM=xterm: No such file or directory." Any thoughts? How can I correct this?

Hello,
Just a couple of thoughts
Did you use "via su - lsf" as in your post ?
I would say the error is more likely due to a typo at the TERM setting

I wish it were that simple a solution! My typo unfortunately was only in typing my thread; in the actual command I did indeed use lfs.

Hello,
That's what I figured.

What about the TERM ?
What do you get when you type echo $TERM ?

It looks to me like you are no longer in the lfs environment or the lfs environment was not set up correctly
Although I am not an expert I would not advise going in and out of the lfs environment
I think you should redo the environment setting and see if it works after that

Thanks for your advice. More than redo the environment setting, I started LINUX FROM SCRATCH from scratch. so to speak, and was especially careful with my typing of the command involving TERM, and now it's working fine -- except that I can't "make" binutils! Oh, well -- "I can't go on. I'll go on!"
