There is a post on lfs-support:
Re: Problems after installing glibc
From: Bryan Mason (bmason_at_bmason.com)
Date: Tue Jul 09 2002 - 23:39:12 PDT
which talks about this problem. However, it seems that Bryan's problem occurs
in Chapter 6 using [lfs] version 3.3 on top of SuSE5.3. His problem was
solved by moving "libc.so from /usr/lib to /lib in the chroot-ed system."
Since I am only in Chapter 5 at this point, is this relevant to me?
Someone else from the list asked if he had remembered, "did you remember to do
echo "cross-compiling = no" > configparms &&"
Does this sound like something I should pursue and if so, could someone
explain to me where I am supposed to enter this command?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
