error in adjusting tool chain in LFS 6.3
i am building LFS,my distribution is suse linux

now i am in chapter 5.7. Adjusting the Toolchain

i got this error
lfs@mallika:/mnt/lfs/sources> mv -v /tools/$(gcc -dumpmachine)/bin/{ld,ld -old}
mv: cannot stat `/tools/i586-suse-linux/bin/ld': No such file or directory
but in my tools i had this

lfs@mallika:/mnt/lfs/tools> ls
bin etc i686-pc-linux-gnu include info lib libexec man sbin share

and my gcc dump machine is
lfs@mallika:/mnt/lfs/sources> gcc -dumpmachine

so i had compiled like this is this correct
lfs@mallika:/mnt/lfs/sources> mv -v /tools/i686-pc-linux-gnu/bin/{ld,ld -old}
`/tools/i686-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld' -> /tools/i686-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld-old'

lfs@mallika:/mnt/lfs/tools> mv -v /tools/bin/{ld-new,ld}
`/tools/bin/ld-new' -> `/tools/bin/ld'
so i placed $(gcc -dumpmachine) with i686-pc-linux-gnu is tis correct becoz i tools i found i686-pc-linux-gnu
lfs@mallika:/mnt/lfs/tools> ln -sv /tools/bin/ld /tools/$(gcc -dumpmachine)/bin/ld
create symbolic link `/tools/i586-suse-linux/bin/ld' to `/tools/bin/ld'
ln: creating symbolic link `/tools/i586-suse-linux/bin/ld' to `/tools/bin/ld': No such file or directory

here i also i got same error so i places i586-suse-linux with i686-pc-linux-gnu ,is this correct

lfs@mallika:/mnt/lfs/tools> ln -sv /tools/bin/ld /tools/i686-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld
create symbolic link `/tools/i686-pc-linux-gnu/bin/ld' to `/tools/bin/ld'

Well.......... You crosspost: DON'T!!!!

It also looks like you have 2 accounts (seems that you are saritha as well) and also asked this questions as that user (which I'm trying to answer for you).

Big no-no's!!

Reported the duplicate:

double post, see:
This one is shorter, close it if you're feeling charitable; else, close the other.
& it was closed before I could post this there!

Given the difference in length, the double post might have been accidental.

The duplicate acct. allegation sounds more serious --

chandra123, is it true? If so, why (or how)?

druuna, yes, serious I believe -- what evidence do you have?

3 reasons:

1) lfs@mallika: <- from one of saritha's posts. Same for this post (Nope, this isn't a LFS default host name...),
2) same problem (especially the i586-suse-linux vs i686-pc-linux-gnu part),
3) same use of the english language.

But I'm also aware that this could be coincidence, thats why I used 'looks like' in post #2

I must admit that this p***ed me of at the time. My reply might have been a bit harsh, but I didn't cross the line (correct me if I'm wrong about this).

Anyway, back to the daily routine of answering questions :)

If it were true, it would piss me off too.
No, I don't think you crossed the line.
Thanks for answering.

Are you or aren't aren't you also saritha?
