I'm discovering nalfs, as a "user" who wants to automatically install LFS.
Short version of my question:
Why doesn't it download the missing packages automatically?
How to configure it to do so?
I've followed the instructions in the LFS-SVN README file.
When I launch runit and start, I've got this kind of error msg and it stops.
[...successfully copying pkgs that are already in my local folder...]
I: Executing in /mnt/dataext3/LFS-SVNpackages:
I: cp bash-3.0-fixes-3.patch /mnt/lfs/tools/packages-SVN-7130
-: cp: cannot stat `bash-3.0-fixes-3.patch': No such file or directory
E: Copying failed.
E: Execution failed (1).
I've read somewhere in the config/ files that if we were doing a mistake in
the local folder of packages, nalfs would download/overwrite all the packaged
And, as I've experienced that it's quite boring to download by hand each of
the packages in packages.ent, I hope that nalfs is smarter than that and can
do a lot of things automatically, and automatically downloading the packages
it the kind of things I'm expecting from nalfs!
So, is it normal that it doesn't get the packages automatically?
What to do to allow it to do so?
* I'm running it on a Mandrake 10.0 community.
* I've downloaded and compiled the stable version of nalfs : 1.2.5 (by the
way, I had to modify the files to replace "-lm/libxml2.la" into
"-lm /usr/lib/libxml2.la" else it was failing at the libtool step. After this
change, it compiled OK. But maybe my problem comes from here?).
* I've downloaded and configured the latest version (7130) of lfs-svn profile
