-	  <p>If this is your first time building LFS, using a version not in the book or varying from the book in any way is not a good idea. The IRC channel regulars have a saying, "FBBG". As bugz, the resident bot, is quick to say, this means, "Follow Book, Book Good." They and the people on the lists have helped many an unhappy newbie who deviated from the book during that first build.</p>

 	  <p>With the new Ch 5 build procedure, the most common cause of this problem is forgetting to apply the specs patch.</p>
 	  <p>What happens is that the path to the dynamic linker embedded inside the executable is still pointing at /lib/ld-linux.so.2 and when one goes to run the binary inside the chroot where /lib/ld-linux.so.2 does not exist yet, the very unhelpful <code>No such file or directory</code> error message is shown.</p>

-	  <p>This is caused by using an incompatible host to build LFS (e.g. Fedora Core 2).

To solve this, either use an older host, or build LFS-6.0 (currently in testing).</p>
