I am running from the lfslivecd-x86-6.3-r2160 on a box with a blank
40 GB hard drive. That box as actually a VM running inside
VirtualBox which is running on a physical install of PCLinuxOS
2007. The CD is working nicely in this setup. I have successfully
completed everything up to chapter 5 (I think).
I am currently at chapter 5 on the box as lfs in the shell. With the
new environment created at chapter 4.4 .
Chapter 5 is confusing me.
I have not been able to find anything that answers my questions.
I have read the FAQs. I have been using the google search tool on
the LFS site.
I have read the book from start to chapter 5.3.1 about 6 or 7 times
trying to figure out what I missed. I don't see anything unless 5.1
and 5.2 actually have steps that I am supposed to do.
Does chapter 5.1 and 5.2 actually give instruction that is supposed
to be done at that time? This is not clear to me.
When I do this in chapter 5.3.1
mkdir -v ../binutils-build
I get this error:
mkdir: cannot create directory '../binutils-build': Permission
I ran PWD to determine where I was:
It was at this point that I started reading the book over again.
I have found a lot of documentation on the LFS site that tells one
how to get back where they were in the build process after
terminating the build process because they shutdown.
What I haven't found is information that tells one how to get back
to root after one has (su -)ed to lfs user and is still in the
build process and not trying to come back in.
More information about the lfs-support
