6.11 Glibc02.3.4

I'm installing lfs on a laptop. I went well till now. Currently I came to chapter 6.11. It goes wrong when preparing glibc for completion. After submitting the code:
glibc-2.3.4/configure --prefix=/usr --disable-profile --enable-add-ons --enable-kernel=2.6.0 --libexecdir=/usr/lib/glibc
I get an error "see config.log" that says:
glibc-2.3.4/configure: line 2673: /tools/bin/gcc: No such file or directory

Which version of LFS are you building?

I see there went something wrong compiling and installing GCC pass 2.
what do you get if you type ./gcc -v ?
Did you do the sanity checks and applied all the patches?
The sanity check from GCC pass 2

At this point it is strongly recommended to repeat the sanity check we performed earlier in this chapter. Refer back to Section 5.7, “Adjusting the Toolchain,” and repeat the test compilation. If the result is wrong, the most likely reason is that the GCC Specs patch was not properly applied.
If gcc -v didn't work you have to do the gcc pass 2 again.

its lfs 6.1

I think i need to start over. gcc pass two doens't work and pass one also not. I came all the way to 6.11 with no errors anywhere. I only went aout my chroot to copy the sources. Then went back doing the steps from chapter 6 again.

To avoid chrooting I use XFCE. It is convenient for me as a newbie - I can compile from terminal and extract next packages at the same time and read LFS book with Firefox
Realy glad that LFS live CD has GUI else it would be really confusing to manage all the extracting / compiling / reading process.

Also that live CD building hint
helped a lot.
So now I am doing GCC final build.

Good luck!
