hari,

Continue as a Root user
Take care that you follow the instructions of the manual.
Also everytime you startup the system, be aware that you create:
export LFS=/mnt/lfs because the scripts in the manual refer to this
variable.

Gerard

so you are advising me to install all the software login as ROOT only with
the export LFS=/mnt/lfs

is this right

thanks

if that's the case then you will not have to login; you will automatically
have uid 0. if you're about to boot into your lfs install, then you will
need to login as root because you shouldn't have a lfs user set up, and you
will need root permissions to install all the software.
