You're right, but the utmp file didn't exist as you compiled sh-utils, so
just recompile the package. I had the same problem...is it fixed in the
actual book?

Betreff: uptime


I've thought I had a fully working lfs system so went about adding X
support.

So after compiling X I thought I'd see what my load average was so on
running uptime I got this error message

uptime: couldn't get boot time: No such file or directory

So with this error message I thought that the utmp file didn't exist, but
it did! So the next thing to check was the permissions it has permissions

-rw-r--r--

which I think is right?

Any one got any ideas?

Cheers

Adam
