Resume LFS build at chapter 7 using book 7.2
Hi all. I recently started a build of LFS (book 7.2) after a few half harted attempts a good while ago. I left my computer on for days so i could keep my place and, well i'm not looking forward to my electricity bill!
So i finished chapter 6 and shutdown my computer.

I'm using slackware (14.00 i beleive it is?) for the hosts system, and when i mount my hard drive where i've been building my LFS system and chroot to it etc etc, i type uname -a and it gives me the host system still.

I'm REALLY new to building LFS and want to make sure i can continue the build as it took me 4 days to get this far.

What i'm asking is, can anyone tell me the exact steps (or better yet commands) to resume my build from the very beginning of chapter 7 (book 7.2)

Thanks in advance,

So I presume you have a mountpoint for lfs at /mnt/lfs, make sure it is mounted with mount command.
log in as root check that lfs is in the path echo $LFS
Then do parts 6.2.2 through to end of page.
Then chroot in chapter 6.65

Yeah got the mount point as exactly that, also have the echo $LFS showing /mnt/lfs.

Thanks for the quick reply!

just going to give it a go now. will let you know how i get on.

ok, done all of that and the uname -a command returns Linux slack 3.2.29
this as it should be? or did i completely misunderstand the part in the book when it was talking about entering the virtual kernel...if thats even what it said haha!

You should be in the lfs root dir now, I have never run the uname command when at this point.

gillespiea 12-29-2012 12:04 PM

ok, yeah looks like i'm in the correct root. Thanks very much for your help!
never got this far before and wanted to make sure i was carrying on from the right point.
