I was doing that, but then realised I should wait until the end and see
what happened, and went back and installed some packages over (which
seems to have caused a bit of fragmentation on the partition, because
the libs built after filled the spaces the sources left and it's all a
bit messed up). Right now I'm having a problem with my lfs partition so
perhaps I goofed up somewhere. It complains about inode count being 16
when it should be 17 (all the flippin time). It fixes it, then goes on
about it's business then when I reboot it moans again. :(
I unmounted the partition from suse, did "fsck -c -f -v /dev/hdb4", then
found on SuSE fsck found the same error. It has fixed it, but I haven't
rebooted yet. Could it be a bad block?
I've removed every source directory except the linux sources and
mod-utils, and did
tar -cvpf lfs-backup.tar *
from /mnt/lfs and am now bzip2'ing it. I was gonna copy the .tar.bz2
file to suse, format the lfs partition and extract the .tar.bz2 file
over it. Will that make all the files on /mnt/lfs more or less
contiguous? That's my primary reason for doing it, but I also want to
see if the inode problem goes away.
[oh, the bz2 is finished :) The drive is 340Megs compressed! With
untarred sources and obj files it was 1.5Gbs untarred and 1.1Gbs tarred]
Could the inode problem be connected to another report fsck gives? It
says the lfs partition wasn't cleanly umounted after reboot and does an
fsck (reboot from SuSE; where the partition is still mounted on boot,
could suse be umounting it improperly?). Why is that?

Isn't it always :)
