k, just been testing the ALFS-0.0.5.tar.bz2 package a bit. over Mon., and
Tues. Thought I'd share a bit.
I'd like to see an INSTALL and/or README included in the package. Shall I
post either one of them for inclusion? In particular, I stumbled, untill
HIghoS pointed out that i needed to perl mf && mv mf Makefile.PL && make &&
make install. also a question: if one want's to introduce flags to make,
such as -j3 in the case of dual processor, whould one add it like so in
Make.pm (line 14)?
my $command = $self->fix_text || "make -j3";
or better to set an entity and write that into the profile? As long as it
doesn't have to be changed for every pkg. ;)
K, so anyways, ran accross some things with the chapt9 profile. I hadn't
DL'ed the netkit- base, so correctly, it stopped, and asked retry, continue,
shell, or abort. I wanted to shell, but after choosing, it just errors
again without giving the subshell.
14:50:41 ID: 5 ============= Error =====================
Text : Unable to unpack /lfs/usr/src/2.4.4/netkit-base-0.17.tar.gz
Backend started on rosmarinus (192.168.1.3) on port 5656
the messages are successive tries by me at a shell ;)
k, so what of an abort? well, it aborts , but outputs an error (prolly a
simple config prob.)
Can't call method "eltid" without a package or object reference at
./frontend line 114, <GEN1> line 8.
The backend quits with no output (that I can see) Is the BE supposed to
quit as well as the FE?
That's it, cheers!
