LFS 6.5 Glibc 2.10.1 --> error when running make
Hi everyone !

i'm rather new to linux and i'm trying to learn by using the LFS guide,

i've browsed/searched this forum to see if someone else has got the same error as me , and so far i haven't seen any thread with this error:

here is the string i believe "shows" the fault:

mawk: scripts/gen-sorted.awk: line 19: regular expression compile failed (bad class -- [], [^] or [)
mawk: scripts/gen-sorted.awk: line 19: syntax error at or near ]
mawk: scripts/gen-sorted.awk: line 19: runaway regular expression /, "", subd ...

make[1]: *** No rule to make target `/mnt/lfs/sources/glibc-build/Versions.all', needed by `/mnt/lfs/sources/glibc-build/abi-versions.h'. Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/mnt/lfs/sources/glibc-2.10.1'
make: *** [all] Error 2
hope you guys can help/point me in the right direction so i can get past this :)

mawk is not supported when building LFS, which you should have known if you read this chapter in the LFS book: iv. Host System Requirements.

Do read the whole book and do not deviate from what is in it (as long as you are not familiar with the material).

Hope this helps.
