Hi All,

I go through the install and things seem to go fine until I get to 
Chapter 6 and try to chroot into /lfs. After entering the command for 

cd $LFS &&
chroot $LFS /usr/bin/env -i HOME=/root \
    TERM=$TERM /bin/bash --login

I get this message:

       "/root/.bash_profile: file is to large"

Also get the prompt:


Instead of the:   I have no name

Anyone have an idea as to where I went wrong. Everything compiled 
without any problem and was compiled by the "lfs" user not as root.
