LFS Chap 5 - gcc first make command errors

i am trying to install lfs on a laptop, it only has one hdd in and i would like to keep it for only lfs

so i am using a distro called demolinux, basically it boots from the cd and loads in to memory + i got it free taped to the front of a linux mag!

my problem is basically i have managed to get as far as chapter 5, installing gcc

i have applied the patches, created the build dir and run the configure program
now i am at the first make stage, it dies with the following error


./genattrtab ../../gcc-3.2/gcc/config/i386/ tmp-attrtab.c
make[2]: *** [s-attrtab] Error 137
make[2]: Leaving directory '/.plume/mnt/lfs/static/lfs-packages-4.0/gcc-build/gcc
make[1]: *** [stage1_build] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory '/.plume/mnt/lfs/static/lfs-packages-4.0/gcc-build/gcc
make: *** [bootstrap] Error 2

i presume that genattrtab is a command? if it is i cannot find it on the host or lfs system

do you think it may be a problem with the host distro? if so are there any other cd distros like this or would i have to install something like mandrake on the hdd and do it from there?

I don't know what the error is all about, but there is knoppix, which is a system on a bootable cd.

hey that's not enough for me!
I have the same exact problem but I still want to keep going with my installation. I am installing on Slackware 8.0.

Anyone want to continue to tackle this?
