After jhalfs completed, I followed the instructions to chroot and set the root
passwd. I used:
/usr/sbin/chroot "$LFS" /usr/bin/env -i \
HOME=/root TERM=linux PS1='\u:\w\$ ' \
It's been a while and I don't remember -- The login is in / and not /root. IS
I can't use less or passwd. less displays the file and immediately terminates.
Changing password for root
Enter the new password (minimum of 5 characters)
Please use a combination of upper and lower case letters and numbers.
Bad password: too short.
Warning: weak password (enter it again to use it anyway).
With no chance of typing the password.
man: command exited with status 256: less -s
This looks like a terminal problem to me. I have tried a TERM of linux and
xterm. I have LANG=C. vim works fine, including color.
I can work around these issues of course, but I'd like to use the tools via
chroot. Any ideas? Does this impact the book or is it just my forgetfulness?
