I am trying to build Linux system using LFS version 6.0 on fedora core 3
I have downloaded all the packages however i do not understand why do i need to
ln -s $LFS/tools / ?
then I gave lfs user and lfs group all the ownership of /mnt/lfs -
recursive so that they can have hold on all the subdirectories.
but when i do
ln -s $LFS/tools /
It gives me error.
One more thing, how can link / to $LFS/tools, will it not crash my
existing fedora system ?
[kunalshah at directoryserver boot]$ sudo su -
[root at directoryserver ~]# ln -s /lfs/tools/ /
ln: `//tools': cannot overwrite directory
Any hints please?
Thanks for your help in advanced.
