Unpacking gcc causes system crash.[SOLVED][edit not solved]
Here's the problem. Which btw has happened three times. I did a search here on the LFS forum (gcc) which turned up 36 threads but none described this problem. While this is my first time installing LFS, it is not my first time taking a plunge in this direction. I've installed Gentoo twice on this system.
I'm following the LFS book as well as the HINT: How to build LFS 6.1 system using the LFS liveCD as your host OS. Everything appears to go smoothly until it's time to unpack gcc-3.4.3.tar.bz2 at which point the system freezes. This is the command I'm using to unpack.
tar xf gcc-3.4.3.tar.bz2
I also used this same command to unpack the binutils package previous to to this package no problems there.
I've tried installing from the beginning three times, and the system freezes at this point every time. Also I did not use the HINT during the first install attempt.
BTW instead of downloading all of the packages and to keep everything consistent with the book I used the /sources directory already on the liveCD.
Pentium III (950mhz)
WD 20gb IDE hard drive
Lite-On 52x32x52 CD-R/RW
383 mb sdram memory
onboard video (8mb) (32mb nvidia hit the bricks, waiting on new one to arrive)
Compaq motherboard with i815 chipset
Any help is appreciated.
