Okay - here is the log of my post-chroot-Installation of 2.4.2-Book...
Just ~190 lines this time ;)
Setting up locale
I need a german setup, so I need
localedef -i de_DE -f ISO-8859-1? de_DE
I have to look up the ISO-Number again... 8)
Is localedef really necessary? While installing glibc we already
do "make install_root=$LFS localedata/install-locales" - isn't
that doing the same?
Install less/more before chroot? I just wanted to pipe ls
through one of those to see all the ISO-Files...
Creating device files
Here I suggest to remember people to rm -rf all dirs in
/usr/src, but not linux and tarballs :).
Uh - I forgot to install sed?!? Back to pre-chroot... Reading
the pre-chroot again, I think I've installed it, anyway...
No I know that not just IRC makes you forget things ;)
Back to post-chroot...
After chroot time does not work anymore, so I can not display
compilation-times here... Why?
HINT - you can do an
alias A="./configure --prefix=/usr && make && make install"
for all the packages that need those commands :)
The description still contains "gawk".
I don't have a ncurses-tarball? Is it included on
download.lfs.org? - Uh yes, in intel-packages 8) I only wgot
Perhaps write "vim-* directory" in the book to avoid using a
Create /usr/bin/yacc "cat-style" (still problems with w3m and
We really should make /usr/bin/yacc executable :)
Different language-packages? ./configure +lang de,en,nl or
+lang all... -ask? I need to have a closer look at this...
INSTALL-File says: "follow FHS by putting cat pages under
/var/cache/man provided that that directory exists." - Create
Do we need to set up the makewhatis-database?
Put the "If you don't want to ..." in front of the configure?
(installed with -d as usual :)
The book tells about a "make test" phase, but there is no such
(Failed 5 test scripts out of 229, 97.82% okay. ;)
cd t; ./perl harness reports
Failed Test Status Wstat Total Fail Failed List of failed
lib/io_multihom 2 512 8 8 100.00% 1-8

7 tests and 81 subtests skipped.
Failed 5/236 test scripts, 97.88% okay. 31/11739 subtests failed, 99.74%
Libtool (and others) complains about missing ldconfig - even if
it is not necessary really we should install ldconfig earlier to
kmap-file for germans: i386/qwertz/de-latin1-nodeadkeys.kmap.gz
While doing ln -s it told me that install exists already?
expiry does not have a description yet - man expiry (on debian):
expiry checks (-c) the current password expiration and
forces (-f) changes when required. It is callable as a
normal user command.
patched it for bzip-support :)
sed the variables? Nah . need to edit anyway...
OPT-Variable has to be replaced with -march=CPU (implies -mcpu)
used (I still don't know what to use for Athlons): -march=i686
I just figured out that I don't have the info-pages installed - e.g. gcc.
The README contains information on "make"ing an install without
overwriting newer man-pages - does that work?
Removing old NSS library files
(where did those files come from?)
NOT deleted (because I did not copy them at the beginning!
Configuring essential software
famous cat-style ;)
None of the textbrowser supported cutnpaste in
gnome-terminal... (not lynx, w3m, links...) (...)
To find needed kernel-images: grep image /etc/lilo.conf
"creastion" -> "creation"
"Those two files will be be created." - ehm - they will not...
Creating the setclock script
"change the UTC Variable below to the value of 1" it is 1!
Creating the template script
describe the usage of the template...
Creating the /etc/fstab file
# Begin /etc/fstab
/dev/hda6 / ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/hda3 swap swap defaults 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
# End /etc/fstab
Installing a kernel
Which processor do I need for AMDs thunderbird?
Perhaps there are other etc.sample-files that can be used -
e.g. hosts for non-network-machines...
Choosed the following non.defaults:
gettext: y ipx: n
Appletalk: n AX25: n
net/rom: n x25: n
arcnet: n ipiptunnel: n
strip: n token_ring: n
ax25: n net-rom: n
x.25: n dlci: n
"Edit Makefile for optimization", afterwards you write that you
suggest no optimization?
"Please not" -> "note"
"chagne" -> change
was not done... no network-card in my machine
After booting again I had problems with the bootscripts (cutnpaste I
believe) so I got the scripts-tar. And those scripts worked, just the
loadkeys makes problems. It is not able to find a qwertz.kmap-file. If I
load the i386/qwertz/de-latin1-nodeadkeys.kmap.gz directly it works.
