Possible to create symbolic link on Live USB for main system?


Hello all,

I was going through LFS yesterday and planned to change the symbolic link from "{bin/sh}{dash}" to "{bin/sh}{bash}". Unfortunately, I disconnected from bin/sh but forgot to create another link. Now the system won't boot and failed to shutdown. Wondering if I can make a symbolic link for it on the Live USB or is there another solution? The Distro is Linux Mint 17.1.

Thanks.

You should be able to chroot just like you did when you installed lfs.

Thanks for the reply,

I ended up dragging the sh file from the live usb to the bin directory and am able to reboot.

Glad you got it worked out.
In the future there's a LFS section here under distrobutions, try posting there, because you'll get a faster reply because some of us just look at the distro's we're more familiar with.
