Exclamation BASH won't build... Please help!


Okay, I am attempting to build an LFS 6.2 system, using Ubuntu 6.06 as the host system. I have all the updates and packages required for building the LFS system. I use an AMD-K62 500 MHz, 384 MBs RAM.

I have followed all of the steps from the beginning, and when I get to installing BASH, it will not build. I applied the patch, like it told me to. I run the configure scripts, and it works fine. Then, I type "make" and get this:

lfs@5441-compaq:/mnt/lfs/tools/bash-3.1$ make
yacc -d ./parse.y
make: yacc: Command not found
make: *** [y.tab.c] Error 127
lfs@5441-compaq:/mnt/lfs/tools/bash-3.1$

It did this to me a while back. So I attempted to build the whole system over again and get to this same stage and it does the same thing. Can anyone help?

PS, just because I am 14 doesn't mean I don't know what I am doing (most of the time lol). I have been using Ubuntu and some other distros for about a year now.

Thanks,
Chris

No, I did not have bison installed. I installed it and now it is working.

Thanks, man.

I have never seen anyone on this site act any differently due to someone's age, so I wouldn't worry about it.
