Exclamation Muy importante: "Read the book first, Luke!"


Well, that was a very useful bit of reading. ...

LFS 6 is, in some important ways, very different from previous versions, and the online book just keeps on getting better. I just sat down and re-read the whole darned thing before doing the new kernel and found the experience to be extremely helpful.

Ok, I will.........as I type this, I'm d/l the LFS liveCD.......which of course has all the packages for v6.1, it's time to upgrade because I built LFS and BLFS v5.0 well over a year and a half ago and this has a damn good system, it only borked twice in that time(how many windows users can say that?)......I'm gonna use LFS 5.0 as my host.....and see if I can crash it.....LOL

here is an "update" for the sake of the LQ search engine..........

I have LFS 6.1 compiled and installed, and it boots up "fast"! -- the only problem was with Module-Init-Tools, apparently it looks for the zlib-dev package which of course LFS does not install........when I ran make the error was this......
Code:
root:/module-init-tools-3.1# make
source='lsmod.c' object='lsmod.o' libtool=no \
depfile='.deps/lsmod.Po' tmpdepfile='.deps/lsmod.TPo' \
depmode=gcc3 /bin/sh ./depcomp \
gcc -DPACKAGE_NAME=\"\" -DPACKAGE_TARNAME=\"\" -DPACKAGE_VERSION=\"\" -DPACKAGE_STRING=\"\" -DPACKAGE_BUGREPORT=\"\" -DPACKAGE=\"module-init-tools\" -DVERSION=\"3.1\" -DCONFIG_USE_ZLIB=1  -I. -I.     -g -O2 -Wunused -Wall -c `test -f 'lsmod.c' || echo './'`lsmod.c
gcc  -g -O2 -Wunused -Wall   -o lsmod  lsmod.o -Wl,-Bstatic -lz -Wl,-Bdynamic
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lz
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [lsmod] Error 1
root:/module-init-tools-3.1#
so I spent 3 hours or so googling and reading other forum threads trying to resolve the issue, I finally just re-ran the ./configure without the "--enable-zlib" option
Code:
./configure --prefix="" --enable-zlib

The meaning of the configure options:

--enable-zlib

    This allows the Module-Init-Tools package to handle compressed kernel modules.
and it installed just fine....... I did send a bug report to the LFS guys because I could not find an answer to the problem......oh well .......on to the BLFS book.........

You should have a libz.so though since LFS does install zlib.

Do an ls -l /usr/lib/libz.so and you should get something like
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 23 2005-05-20 23:18 /usr/lib/libz.so -> ../../lib/libz.so.1.2.2
and you should have two libz.so* files in /lib
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13 2005-05-20 23:18 /lib/libz.so.1 -> libz.so.1.2.2
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 79601 2005-05-20 23:16 /lib/libz.so.1.2.2
