Question unable to extract gcc 4.1.2 on lfs


hi guys.(newbie message)

i came accross this linux from scratch froma friend of mine and i must admit that this is the most challenging thing that i have ever done on linux systems.
i am having trouble extracting gcc 4.1.2 on my lfs build. i am finding this strange because i successfully extracted binutils and installed it without any problems. i had some screenshots but i cant post them here.
i am currently building my lfs system on virtual box 4.1.6. when i run the "df" command, i see that i have 3.5gb of space remaining.

kindly assist where possible.

Can you explain some more what is happening
I dont see why there should be a problem with extracting it
Code:
tar xvjf gcc-4.1.2.tar.bz2
This is an old gcc What book are you using

Yes that cd is out of date now there are other distros you can use as live cd or from an installed linux OS. Also You would be better following the new book

thanks.
guess i'll have to use the newer version then. unfortunately, there is no lfs livecd for 7.0. how can one build the lfs using the latest packages on a virtual machine? is there another technique

I dont use virtual machine I build on specific partition, But saying that what is the OS on the machine.

From there I presume you mount the virtual system and build on it like that.

You can still use that specific cd as host, just don't use the packages for building LFS 6.3 that are included.

You can download the LFS 7.0 tarball here: LFS Packages

Hope this helps.
