Hello,

One problem:

When I do su - binutils and I want to open a new terminal from prompt every command I know of opening a new terminal tells me command not found.
I tried xterm, terminal.

compare value of PATH variable before su and after it:
Code:
echo $PATH
Maybe you haven't setup /etc/profile or your ~/.bash_* yet, thus you don't get PATH set.

Hello,

Makes no difference. Also in chroot as root I can't get a terminal from prompt.
See this :
Code:
root:/# echo $PATH
/bin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin:/tools/bin
root:/# xterm
bash: xterm: command not found
root:/# terminal
bash: terminal: command not found
root:/# su - binutils
package binutils:/usr/src/binutils> echo $PATH
/usr/lib/pkgusr:/bin:/usr/bin:/tools/bin
package binutils:/usr/src/binutils> xterm
-bash: xterm: command not found
package binutils:/usr/src/binutils> terminal
-bash: terminal: command not found
package binutils:/usr/src/binutils>
Roelof

Edit :
I find something wierd,
see this:
Code:
root:/# find / -iname xterm
/tools/share/terminfo/x/xterm

root:/# /tools/share/terminfo/x/xterm
bash: /tools/share/terminfo/x/xterm: Permission denied
root:/# ls -al /tools/share/terminfo/x/xterm
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 3258 Apr 23 15:32 /tools/share/terminfo/x/xterm

What exactly is the question at this point? Is it the xterm issue? Or is it still the original question from post #1? If so, then at which point did the error occur? Was it after the configure, make ...?
And having no ptys is definitely not good. When you say you have no problems with that as root, are you still root in the chroot environment or your 'normal' environment?
What is the output of
Code:
mount

You can't because you haven't installed xterm into chroot. But you don't have to. Start xterm from the host system as non-root and then do what you need.

I just wanted to report that I have the same issue as well. No errors were reported when I ran the `expect -c "spawn ls"` command as root.

I was able to run the check as root; the tests were successfully completed. I just changed my build script to bypass the checks, and install the package anyway.

UPDATE: Solution to PTY error.

The response provided in the LFS FAQ about this issue [1] is out of date; this is because the material references an obsolete kernel option.

According to the Linux Kernel Driver Database [2], the kernel option for enabling the devpts filesystem ("CONFIG_DEVPTS_FS=y") is obsolete. The functionality is available via the pt_chown program, which is included in glibc, the GNU C Library.

The solution to this issue is to adjust permissions for the program. If using the user-based package management scheme [3], the following should fix the issue:

Quote:
chown -v root $LFS/tools/libexec/pt_chown
chmod -v u+s $LFS/tools/libexec/pt_chown
Alternatively, follow the instructions provided in another thread [4].

Hope this helps.

HEllo Anket,

If I understood you right. I have to do these steps in the binutils source directory?

Actually, the commands should be run as the superuser (i.e. root) *before* creating the binutils source directory.

The commands are using the explicit path to the pt_chown program. Therefore, they can be run from *anywhere* in the chroot environment.

Hope this helps.
