Thanks for the help. I was using CVS but when I downloaded groff from
gnu.org I accidently downloaded groff-1.18 without ever noticing it
wasn't 1.18.1. It worked fine now

Problem Installing GlibC

Hello,

I'm using the CVS, and am installing GlibC in chapter 6. Everything seems to
work fine until I run the 'make' command, and it says:

Makeconfig:84:sysdeps/../config.make: No such file or directory
Makerules:694: No filename for 'include'
The GNU C Library has not been configured.
Run 'configure' to configure it before building.
Try 'configure --help' for more details.
make: ***[sysdeps/../config.status] Error 1

But the thing is, I've already run the:

../glibc-2.3.1/configure --prefix=/usr \
    --disable-profile --enable-add-ons \
    --libexecdir=/usr/bin

And it works fine. And then it gives me that error when I run the 'make.'

I'd be much appreciative of any help.

Hmm, I guess that's why they call it the LInux LOader?  Learn to read, 
troll!  Don't flame something you know nothing about, and, judging by 
your post, you obviously know nothing about lilo, or vi for that matter. 
  Go back to windows and leave us alone if you wanna keep that up.

LILO stands for linux loader.  To be quite honest, though, I am considering
switching back to Windows for Microsoft's bootloader, which is much
superior.  Since it's not proprietary like LILO is, it's not hindered by
such issues as configuration and checking to make sure there's nothing
already written in the MBR.  Also, since Windows automatically puts it in
the MBR and properly detects other operating systems without a hitch,
there's no need to go into a text editor or heaven forbid recompile a
kernel to get the bootloader working.

Like you, I haven't tried GRUB or know anything about it either, so I can
safely agree with that statement.  GRUB *does* blow donkeys.

Cheers,
ThanatosNL

No.  Let's not continue.

Re: Getting ready to attempt an install.. - stop

Please stop.

This sort of behavior is not welcome on any LFS mailing list.

Segmentation Fault Core Dump

I am installing using the 4.0 LFS Book and I am having difficulties installing binutils.  I believe that the only things I have deviated from in the install is using gcc-3.2.1  and sed 4.05.  I have tried recompiling with gcc-3.2 and patching according to the book, then trying to recompile binutils but that had identical results.  I am going to attempt compiling sed with the version recommended by the book and see if that works, but I was wondering if anyone else had any ideas?  I did notice that binutils does depend on sed, so I am hopeful that this is the correct lead.

GlibC problem

I think I sent this before, but I'm not sure if it got through. I had some
slight technical difficulties that have now (I hope) been resolved.

But just in case:
