I am just pointing out the facts as can be found by searching the
archives of any of the LFS mailing lists. I am not trying to be
accusatory or rude. Your response is the typical response that can
also by found in the same archives to the challenges made by many.

Often times it is necessary to find help and solutions from some place
other than LFS because of this kind of attitude from people responding
as you have.
