Package different from standard wget...

Otay, I've made some headway:

The package that's different from the wget.lfs.urls listing for LFS 5.1.1 
and the profile for LFS 5.1.1 that comes with nALFS 1.2.3 (which I'm using 
with nALFS 1.2.2) is this:

The file in the wget script is:

and the nALFS profile is expecting:


which *is* present in the 5.1.1 tarball that I'd downloaded.

[[ I'm posting this here first, but will file it in bugzilla next, once I 
figure out how to do that... ]]


I don't know if I did right or not, but I pointed that "linux-config" in 
the general.ent to my /usr/src/linux/.config file -- that seems to have 
pacified it, altho I dunno if it's gonna cause heartburn to use that file, 
as the profile is set up for a module for my ethernet driver, but it's 
compiled into the kernel, and the .config file reflects that.  {I'm an 
old-school fart -- *everything's* compiled into the kernel... ;-) We don't 
need no steenkin' modules! }

I usually compile my kernels by hand anyway, so hopefully it shouldn't 
cause too much heartburn... ;-)

It's compiling gcc 3.3.3 (pass 1) right now, so I'll let y'all know how it 

Thanks, (and hopefully I got the terminology right this time!),
