Hi everyone:

After a pause, I setup my system and decided to try LFS again. However, I am encountering some basic startup problems. I checked the FAQ and couldn't find assistance to my problem.

Background Info.:
a). My parent system is Damn Small Linux Version 8.4

b) My Attempt: LFS Version 5.1.1

Error 1
lfs at 8[binutils-2.14]$ sudo time { ./configure ... && ... && ... && make install; }
bash: syntax error near unexpected token `}'

Error 2

lfs at 5[binutils-build]$ ../binutils-2.14/configure --prefix=/tools --disable-nls
loading cache ./config.cache
checking host system type... i586-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking target system type... i586-pc-linux-gnuoldld
checking build system type... i586-pc-linux-gnuoldld
../binutils-2.14/configure: line 2206: cc: command not found
*** The command 'cc -o conftest -g conftest.c' failed.
*** You must set the environment variable CC to a working compiler

Solution Tried for Error 2:
I tried gcc -v, it returned command not found. I also searched manually for gcc in /usr/bin and /usr/lib along with a fwe other directories. ALso tried the where is and find commands for /gcc. None helped to locate the /gcc .

Please assist.

Thanks.

Vijay
