Not sure, it's not my invention. What i know if: the make
localedata/install-locales installs all the locale files. The localdef
command sets one of the locales (ie: iwth localedef you can change from one

Hmm...might be a good idea. Anybody else have a comment on it?
On the other hand, open new virtual console/xterm, do ls $LFS/usr/blah/blah |
less and you get the same effect...

Don't know. Perhaps not enough has been installed yet?

Don't let the book stop you...those things are up to the reader. A simple
reading of the documentation will tell the user that. How far should we go
with dictating what somebody can or should do.

Right, is removed from 2.4.3

Can be arranged. Expect to be fixed in 2.4.3, provided ld.so compiles ok at
that earlier stage but I don't see why it wouldn't.

I noticed that too last friday, has been removed already.

There we go, i don't have an expiry man page coming wiht my shadow password

I never tested it, a
yes n|cp -avi man* /usr/share/man
works just as well ;)
It does date checks thta always makes me wary. What if the date isn't set
properly, so it overwrites files anyways. I rather do a "never overwrite

i686 would be my best guess. Perhaps the Athlon/K7 option (2.4 kernels only)

Perhaps LFS-2.4.3 will be bug free then ?;)
