Yeah, I figured that out not too long ago, if only you had posted a little earlier , that was exactly what was wrong though.

I've run into another snag, though. I've completely finished my system, I go to boot into it, and the boot loader shows up and everything. Then it says "FAILURE: Unable to create/etc/rc.d/init.d/functions: line 120: grep: command not found devices without a SysFS filesystem/etc/rc.d/init.d/functions: line 120: grep: command not found

After you press Enter, this system/etc/rc.d/init.d/functions: line 120: grep: command not found
will be halted and powered off ./etc/rc.d/init.d/functions: line 120: grep: command not found

Press Enter to continue .../etc/rc.d/init.d/functions: line 120: grep: command not found"

can anyone please help me? Project due in two days

Hi,

Looks like grep is not (or not correctly) installed.

which grep should come up with something like this:

/bin/grep

If it doesn't, try installing it again. Grep was installed late in chapter 6, if the packages installed after grep did not need grep you are in luck otherwise you need to redo all the packages that need grep.

Hope this helps.

Sorry Chereb, i just start yesterday for LFS, i'm doing it in my spare time, i'm just in the middle of chapter 5, but like druuna said, grep is not installed or correctly installed. I saw your message yesterday because i was checking if it was a syntax problem or else for me in my installation.

Lol its okay man I was just kidding .

Druuna. Right now I am trying to regain access to my system....after rebooting my computer, I do not know how to get access back into all of the stuff I just did, do I have to remount it somehow? I tried to chroot back in but it didn't exist, how can I re access the work environment I was in before I rebooted?

Hi,

Start from your live CD again

And then take a look at:
- 6.2 Mounting Virtual Kernel File Systems,
- 6.3 Entering the Chroot Environment.

Having done that you can re-install grep (6.44) and others if you have to.

Hope I didn't forget a step. Read chapter 6 again up to installing grep, the book will mention it if you need to do anything special after stopping/restarting.

<edit>
Just looked at chapter 4, you probably need to do that as well.
</edit>

Hope this helps.

I'm installing linux from scratch and have a little problem. I've arrived at chapter 6. I need to change back to root, but it seems that I've "forgotten" (my keyboard is a bit sticky, so it could be that something wrong was entered in chapter 4) my root password. So now I'm wondering if I can reboot from the live CD without doing chapter 5 all over. I'll probably have to do some things of chapter 4 again. I'll also would like to get some advice on which steps of chapter 4 I shoud redo.

<edit>
I've changed the root password by opening a new terminal window and entering the command passwd. How do I check if everything is still correct after doing this?
</edit>

After issueing the make -k check >glibc-check-log 2>&1 command I get the following error:

Code:
make[2]: [/sources/glibc-build/posix/annexc.out] Error 1 (ignored)
Does someone know if this is important 'cause I don't find anything about it on the internet (at least not by googling for it).

Good on you Nemau! I remember that being in the ver 5 hand book.

I have one tip, to scroll up use "shift+PageUp". Depending how big the frame buffer is it should allow you to scroll and see the previous messages.

Can I reboot and load my computer from other host system - for example SUSE 10.1 ?
