many thanks for your uggestion.
I have linked /bin/depmod to /sbin/depmod rebuilt the kernel and make modules_install
now report no errors. The system still does not boot.
Below are my 'departures' from the prescribed LFS:
1) I compiled kernel 2.4.25 in /usr/src. I made the taditional linux symlink
to linux-2.4.25 (after decompressing the archive).
2) I used an ext3 partition. However I adjusted /etc/fstab and I ran tune2fs
-j /dev/hda5 as instructed from http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/view/stable/postlfs/ext3.html
Any suggestion if any of the above could be causing the problem, are welcomed.
I also noticed that the LFS bootscripts seems not to be executable I installed
them as instructed
but after kernel installtion, bootdisk making boot-loader installation
typing commands such as reboot, halt or 'sh reboot', 'sh halt' are ignored
(even from within the /etc/rc.d/init.d dircetory). Could anyone explain
if these scripts are to be made executible?
Also the grub bootfloppy just generate a series of zeros.
All suggestions welcomed.
