Hi Bruce

Thank you for the advice . Make sense now.

Just one more question:

When trying to find the sources now for some reason a symlink has been
created

root:/sources# ls -al
total 8
drwxrwxrwt  2 1000 root 4096 Dec 23 23:16 .
drwxr-xr-x 19 root root 4096 Dec 23 14:44 ..
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root   27 Dec 23 23:16 lfs-sources ->
/dev/shm/.cdrom/lfs-sources

So when I am in root:/sources# I cannot untar package .

Kind regards

Greg
