Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Originally posted by leonscape I imagine the lfs partition, ( you already have one on your host ), unless it says edit, then your editing the one you already have. You'd have to log out, and nack in for it to take effect though.
Not entirely true.. you can invoke this command to make it take affect immediately:
And I do believe when editing your .bash_profile or .bashrc files, its on your existing system while performing the LFS installation.. until you boot up into LFS for the first time, your not going to be using these files on its partition.
ok just in case I just copied them into my LFS partition.
I also have another problem after downloading all the packages and patches to /mnt/source the book then tells me to extract them as the lfs user but all the files are set to 600 for permissions and a few are set to 644. the file ownership belongs to my original account which is the account i used to downlad the files. the group ownership belongs to users which is default.
I checked the umask on the partition and it's 0022
the sources folder permissions are drwxrwxrwt 2 lfs root
I dunno where I went wrong should i start all over again?
Stop bumping threads and or hijacking threads per se. LFS is not very newbie friendly, not everyone is familiar with it. And making statements that no one knows nothing is not going to get faster replies, only piss members off who do come here to help PEOPLE like you in their own free time. Be patient!
