Broken root user
I have Suse 9.2 Pro installed and was playing around a little with Linux from scratch. After one false start I deleted the lfs user and group and the binutils+gcc packages (the only two I had installed) because I wanted to start this thing from scratch. Now when I did an su the root user didn't goto /root. it stayed in my directory. When I typed 'groupadd lfs' it couldn't find the command! I had to do a whereis and type it from the directory. The same thing now for init, I had to go into the sbin directory and do a ./init
When I tried to do the configure for binutils using the new lfs user it said /bin/sh: Bad interpreter
What have I done?!? I ran Suse system check and it's still broke.
What has lfs (or me) done to the system to do this, and how can I fix it? Besides a full reinstall (not the end of the world, but I don't feel like redoing mplayer, quake3 and Nvidia).
My original user still seems to work fine, I ran a ./configure on mplayer with no issues.
