I'm having problems with Part II – Chapter 5 of LFS-Book 6.1.1
in the binutils section cannot type *cd ../binutils-build* or anything with
".." it just never finds the directory
for eg:

lfs at linux:/binutils-build> time { ../binutils-
--prefix/=tools --disable-nls && make && make install; }
bash: ../binutils- No such file or directory

real    0m0.001s
user    0m0.000s
sys     0m0.001s

so i change the ".." to $LFS/sources/ and it seems to work (is this

The Next problem i have is this, when i use the command:

lfs at linux:/binutils-build> time { $LFS/sources/binutils-
--prefix=/tools --disable-nls && make && make install; }

everything seems to go fine but at the end i get the following errors

make[3]: Entering directory `/binutils-build/gas/doc'
rm -f gasver.texi
echo '@set VERSION' > gasver.texi
touch as.1
touch: cannot touch `as.1': Permission denied
make[3]: *** [as.1] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/binutils-build/gas/doc'
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/binutils-build/gas'
make[1]: *** [all] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/binutils-build/gas'
make: *** [all-gas] Error 2

real    0m36.900s
user    0m12.772s
sys     0m10.910s

What should i do?
Is the make complete? i assume this is a permission problem again but i have
no idea how to fix it – I've already set ownership of /mnt/lfs to the user

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
