I've went threw the linux froms cratch book, without any trouble, all the way up until I changed root... I already had all the packages unpacked...I entered the MAKEDEV-2.6 directory, & did what it told me too..then cd'd to /dev & ./MAKEDEV -v generic 'd...Bash told me:
./MAKEDEV: no such file or directory...but the ls command shows it plain && clear..
I did the chmod 754..then tried 755 as it was shown in an older version of the linux from scratch book...  Then, I exited the chroot'ed environment & MAKEDEV'd as worked okay, so I chrooted'd again...but when I went to install GCC, it told me there's no configure file, but ls shows that it does exist...  I don't now much about anything...I have no idea what the trouble is.  I've tried it over and over..
Any help would be much appreciated!  Thanks for your time,
