mkdir /mnt/lfs
cd /mnt/lfs
svn co svn:// lfs-livecd
cd lfs-livecd

Or, if you prefer to use another directory:

mkdir /mnt/vm
cd /mnt/vm
svn co svn:// lfs-livecd
cd lfs-livecd
echo "export MPBASE = /mnt/vm" >Makefile.personal

That's all. "make scrub" will erase everything, "make unmount" will properly 
  clean up the mounts after a build error.

If you change anything and type "make" again, only the changed packages will 
be rebuilt.

Could you please add a "sleep 5" just after "/sbin/udevd --daemon", for 
testing? I suspect that udevtrigger is started too early.

OTOH, this might be a genuine upstream bug in libata, in which case I will 
leave it unfixed.

As for the USB keyboard issue, this should be fixed in r1915.
