I'm always reluctant to comment on the x86_64 versions of the Live
CD because I don't know what the included book actually says.
However, in this case I think I've seen similar problems in my own
builds (CLFS with UTF-8 - it's libidn which provokes it).
There should be a sed to alter test-installation.pl (after
renaming the libidn directory, before creating ../glibc-build) -
the following version works for me on pure64 (it's a rather long
sed -i \
's|libs -o|libs -L/usr/lib -Wl,-dynamic-linker=/lib/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 -o|' \
I'm fairly sure the Live CD's book must have some version of this -
maybe you missed it, or perhaps you've acquired an inappropriate
version from somewhere (either -L/usr/lib64 or /lib/ld-linux.so.2).
The /usr/lib64 version can probably be made to work with a symlink,
if that's what that book is using.
