hai

This is my first time on a mailing list, and I can't find any
"guidelines" on how to use them properly. Would someone be kind enough
to direct me?

Thanks.

Welcome,

I'd start with http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/faq/  Specifically, the section 
'What about netiquette?' I believe there are still links near the beginning of 
the LFS book too.

Trent.

Doesn't look like it:

At least not yet!

Advertising email address

Hi. I want to know what are the rules for using an lfs email address. I'd like 
to use my lfs email on torrent uploads, and I want to know if that is 
acceptable.

I don't want to do it without asking first. I admit that the lfs email would 
help with the popularity of the torrent.

What kind of torrents are you talking about anyway? There are no real 
rules about using LFS email addresses. Use it at your discretion within 
reason.

Having problems with chroot

Hi guys,

I am using lfs book version 6.4 . I am at the part 6 which where I 
supposed to chroot. When I use command into chroot I encountered "I have 
no name" thing. I thought I couldn't login as root. To be able to login 
to root I used "exec /tools/bin/bash --login +h" command in another 
konsole. And now I can't login using chroot anymore. Does anyone know 
how to fix that?!?

Re: Kernel Panic not syning vfs unable to boot fs and also showing list of available partitions

I've encountered the same error on my first boot up of lfs. Edit your lfs entry in grub with (root=/dev/sda8) as the boot option "root" to (hd0,7). Below is the entry for my lfs build and it is on /dev/sda5.

Example:

title         LFS (Linux for Scratch) 6.4
root         (hd0,4)
kernel         /boot/lfskernel-2.6.27.4 root=/dev/sda5
savedefault
boot

My fdisk,

Disk /dev/sda: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60801 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x58455f47

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1               1         261     2096451   82  Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/sda2             262        5483    41945715   83  Linux
/dev/sda3   *        5484       12010    52428127+   7  HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda4           12011       60801   391913707+   5  Extended
/dev/sda5           12011       13315    10482381   83  Linux

/dev/sda7           21149       60801   318512691   83  Linux

I hope this helps, cheers! :)

Re: Having problems with chroot

go to lfs-support for support, but this would imply that the nss
libraries are missing (so it does not know  your name is root).
Earlier books worked just fine in 'I have no name' (I am not sure if
this was added to version 4, or 5 of the book.  Ancient history you
should not see it today), but it was addressed later by adding some
packages into chapter 5.

Most likely something was missed in chapter 5
