Creation of /etc/fstab moved

In current CLFS, the page for /etc/fstab is now in system-config instead 
of bootable. This line should be copied to the case statement for 
system-config:

*fstab)  [[ ! -z ${FSTAB} ]] && cp ${FSTAB} $BUILDDIR/sources/fstab ;;

We have updated our book some more regarding setting our variables.

Please take a look and adjust any comments if see fit.

Chris stated it works well for current versions and previous versions  
of the book before the above changes.

CLFS Boot method changes for root user use

Greetings,

In our previous books, we started the boot chapter system as using the  
root user:

http://cross-lfs.org/view/CLFS-2.1.0/x86/boot/introduction.html
This changes the owner to the clfs user for ${CLFS}  "/mnt/clfs" by  
default

After that page, the clfs user can install what is needed until we get  
to installing some devices which we used the root user again for the  
rest of the chapter:

http://cross-lfs.org/view/CLFS-2.1.0/x86/boot/devices.html

For our current changes, we start the boot chapter as the clfs user  
and install what is required until we need the root user:

http://cross-lfs.org/view/systemd/html/x86/boot/creatingdirs.html

We use the root user for the reset of the chapter.

I need some help in figuring out what to do with jHALFS so the root  
user starts being used for the following pages in our chapter 7 boot  
method:

creatingdirs
createfiles
devices
pwdgroup

jHALFS CLFS master.sh changes

Greetings,

With CLFS, our current cross-lfs book has been going through some  
major changes.

With our future releases, we've been reorganizing and renaming some  
parts of the book.

With jHALFS, some changes need to occur to work with current systemd  
branch and future releases and with past releases.

Our bootscripts section has been renamed to system-config since our  
future releases will not contain bootscripts anymore.
Our boot method will have a boot-scripts package which are scripts  
only for the boot method.

To address these issues I have these changes which have been tested  
and work:

http://hastebin.com/nozukimaki.diff
Attachment (jhalfs-clfs.diff): application/octet-stream, 888 bytes

I've also attached the diff.

If considered upstream, the changes can be adjusted to be more proper  
if not already in the desired state. This includes variable names, or  
the structure of the conditionals.

New BLFS tools

Hi,

I do not know how many people on Earth are using the jhalfs BLFS tools 
(at least me...). If anybody else is doing so, I wanted to let them know 
that I did a major overhaul of the download code generation. I did my 
best to test everything, but there might still be some bug, so please 
report them on this list (or in the bug tracker).

Regards
Pierre

critical tests for clfs

While editing clfs.xsl for fixing the perl note regarding the boot method (see
http://lists.cross-lfs.org/pipermail/clfs-dev-cross-lfs.org/2014-March/001932.html),
I realized that the only critical tests which are run are those inside a sect1
with id:
ch-system-gcc
ch-system-eglibc
ch-system-gmp
ch-system-mpfr
ch-system-mpc
ch-system-ppl
ch-system-isl
ch-system-cloog
ch-system-cloog-ppl
ch-system-binutils

First, the systemd branch uses ch-system-glibc, which I'll ad at the next
commit, but there are other possibilities. The multilib book has also for example:
ch-system-eglibc-32
ch-system-gmp-32
ch-system-gmp-n32
etc.

Should I include all those in the critical tests?

Regards
Pierre

CLFS xsl update proposal

Greetings,

Finally got around to looking through clfs.xsl and adding support for  
the remap=test so extraction of the commands required for the test  
suites are  properly included with the output using our current xml.   
I followed what was in LFS/lfs.xsl as  guide and changed some of the  
lines and added some lines which are particular to CLFS only. Such as  
isl, cloog, ppl (for older books).  I didn't add an entry for cloog- 
ppl, yet ( only valid for CLFS books up to version 1.2.0):

+                          not(ancestor::sect1[ <at> id='ch-system-cloog- 
ppl']) and

I changed Config.in to output different wording for the Final system  
test suites for TST_1 when not using the CLFS_BOOK and when using the  
CLFS_BOOK. It is trivial, really not needed, but if too much gets put  
in one line, it looks bad when in the menu portion when selecting the  
testsuite options.

I think I have done this properly, let me know if you see something  
that is improper.
