The build is prepared but confused about the next steps to build the LFS system


Hi,

in order to learn more about Linux, I am currently in the process to "Build Linux from Scratch", which I am trying to do according the book version SVN-20140127.

So far, I finished chapter 5 "Constructing a Temporary System", which means I have all the files compiled and I can find a lot of files in the /tools directory.

In chapter 6, I am throught the first sub-chapters did the chroot and established the directories, essential files and symlinks.

In the chroot-environment, my next steps would be "6.7 Linux-3.13 API Headers".

Do I have to do the same procedure as for chapter 5, which was: uncompress the source files, change into the new directory and do there the make commands? ... I mean it seams pretty obivous, but honestely, I would like to be sure, so I am asking first, before I have to do all over again.

Thanks for your understanding! Cheers

Yes.

The "General Compiling Instructions" still apply in chapter 6. Only now, things will be installed in folders in the new system (instead of in the /tools directory).

The /tools section is really nothing more than a bootstrap system to natively build your OS in a clean environment.

As a general rule any time you get a command to create a new build directory make sure its deleted after you finish the section your on before proceeding. You will have the option now in Chapter 6 of archiving your source packages using the command:

Code:
make clean
...after you finish the installation and post-install configuration section, or you can simply delete the directory outright.

ahh ... yes ... of course. I am pretty sure the book also explained that, but somehow I forget respectively got confused that indeed I have somehow to deal with 3 systems/environments:
1) my host (where I started with)
2) the clean environment (into which I chrooted)
3) the final goal: my "own" Linux-distro

Somehow, I didn't had this clearly in my mind, when I asked the question.

Anyhow, thanks for your nice comments!
