I've just downloaded Salix Fluxbox and used LinuxLiveUSB. I virtualized it, but it only showed options for installations and not live. Anyway, it occurred to me that I'd have to create another user even if it were live, and this means that I need to do the whole process in one go, am I correct?

If you mount the partitions locally, you won't have to. The Live DVD is what you basically will use to build the system off the main hard drive.

You can always reboot, remount the LFS drive as the book shows, re-link the paths, re-chroot back in (when you get to those steps), and keep going.

The Live DVD is just a portable OS.

What directory did you run the sed command in? Did you do it in the "binutils-2.23.2" source directory (correct) or the "binutils-build" directory (wrong)?

Oh but I'm referring to the unpacking. So it means that I can unpack using any user, as long as it's not root right?

I ran it in binutils-2.23.2 and it worked at last. Permission is denied though so I needed to use sudo (which as the book says is not safe).

Unpacking is done within the main drive.

You could try using the su command rather than sudo. I doubt Salix uses a password for root.

Hope this isn't considered necroposting - just had something to add for future reference:
I am currently just past this stage. First time around I got this same error. After some lengthy reading it dawned on me - the host system ( ubuntu 12.04 liveusb - yeah, I know, don't ask ) was missing 'makeinfo'! In the case of 'buntu just 'sudo apt-get install texinfo', make clean, remake and it should end without glitches.
