It was recognized that there might be a problem with the book.
As of this writing, it has not been proven that there is a problem with the book
To prove that, just needs for someone to make the attempt to build
from 6.1 to 6.6 by hand to elimiate the possibilty of a script
introducing some peculiar effect.

But, due to debate, that point has become obsolete since the book has
been obligingly updated.

That's the way it works.

Everybody is happy to help solving problems encountered while building
a system according to the instructions in the book
LFS-DEV is for discussing the contents of the book.
Disagreements irritate everybody and should go private email and then
the result can be summarised.

At least that is what I thought.

The LFS books are great and the support is great.
