Using jhalfs - book problem


I'm trying to use jhalfs for the first time.

After completing the configuration using the menu I type make to start the build.

It immediately complains that it can't download the LFS-6.3 book.

But I'm not connected to the internet. I am using the Live CD and the book is on that.

To use jhalfs do I need to be connected to the internet? if not, how can I tell the configuration to use the book on the Live CD.

Any help would be much appereciated.

It needs the book's XML sources. They are on the LiveCD as well, in addition to the HTML version of the book, but you need to change the configuration to tell it to use them. Under "BOOK Settings" in the menu, change "Release (SVN)" to "Release (Working Copy)" and then edit the field that comes up to match the location for the sources: /usr/share/LFS-BOOK-6.3-XML

No problem, it's what I'm paid f... wait a sec, what am I saying, I'm not getting paid for this! What am I doing here?!

Just kidding. It's my pleasure. (Answering questions helps me learn, too.) Feel free to ask again if you encounter any more issues.

Just to report that the suggestion worked fine. Thanks again Mystican.

I now have another problem - but that is the subject of another thread!
