Did not know if sending here, to lfs -dev or to blfs -support.
1. Happened with lfs-7.2,7.3 (both svn) and now with 7.4-rc1.
Long ago, I reported that each time I tried to chroot in LFS7.2 (LFS7.1
as host), after logout and umount, had to reboot the system, because I
could not get a terminal anymore (have a screen capture showing this,
now), and today, X died, in the host.
This has been reproduced, today, host LFS7.1, chroot in LFS7.4-rc1. I
believe, now I understood the reason. I have (in 7.1):
$ grep tty /etc/group
$ grep /dev/pts /etc/fstab
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=4,mode=620 0 0
But I was mounting and chrooting with gid 5, as per the book's instructions.
Now, I have changed both to gid 5, to conform with the new versions, and
the problem disappeared. Of course, had to change tape's gid to 4.
Please, *warn me*, if, changing these, I am going to have any trouble in
my old system.
2. Happened, perhaps with all versions.
Every time I try to create compressdoc with cat command, I obtain a
corrupted unusable script. Then, use vim, instead, and copy/paste.
Today, after the problem, just downloaded it from , after I saw, for
the first time, I confess, the suggestion in blfs to do this, alternatively.
Have produced a diff, in case anyone thinks this info is relevant.
