Hello. I'm building an LFS 6.3. This is my first LFS (well, not really,
I tried building one a couple years ago, but I was a total Linux newbie
back then so I didn't get very far). I'm now stuck at the inetutils-1.5
compilation section in Chapter 6.
Here is what I tried to get it working:
*It looks from the log (attached) that the problem is with telnet/telnet.c
- specifically it seems that it's trying to use `tgetent'
*I used the info pages to determine that `tgetent' is a function from
*I grep'ed telnet.c for '#include' and found that term.h was not being
included, so I edited telnet.c to include it (a new source tree of course).
*After trying the make command again, I found that it was failing at the
same spot, for the same reason, therefore my change had no effect
If someone could offer insight, I would appreciate it.
Another thing I should probably mention is that through Chapter 6, when I
installed packages, I first faked the installation to another directory,
tar'ed and bzip2'ed the directory, and extracted it in the root directory to
complete the installation. I usually used the DESTDIR option, except when it
wasn't available, then I found another way to do it.
