All I can say is that I would advise against ANY deviation from the
LFS procedure. Every time, I make any slight deviation from the
spelled out procedure, the whole thing falls apart.
Having said that, I think there is a link on the LFS website where you
can download all of the packages EXACTLY as they are specified in the
document. I would try working with that version first before debugging
any problems that occur thereafter.
I have screwed up on an LFS 6.0 install somewhere building the
Binutils package. I have decided to start over, trying to find the
problem. I also make several backups along the way, and store the
tarballs on a separate drive. That way I can always roll-back the
process a few steps if something doesn't quite look right.
For about 1 year I used an LFS 5.0 system with a subtly broken
toolchain. All of the packages compiled properly, and the system would
boot up and run quite nicely. I moved on to BLFS, and that worked
perfectly as well. However,
Upon installing what I call third party software (non LFS / BLFS
packages) I was plagued by the occasional "Error 2" when compiling,
with no discernable cause to be found, and no observable connection
between concurrent failures. When I attempted to use that LFS 5
install to build LFS 6 NOTHING WORKED. Lesson learned, follow the
instructions EXACTLY as indicated. If something doesn't work, start
again, get it right. You never know what you'll end up with in the
Not really alot here, but hope what I've shared helps.
