I'm sorry I was unclear.  I have Indeed completed the building,
booted it, and ran those commands in the booted environment.

The entire message simply read:
Run LDFLAGS="-lncurses" ./configure and/or LDFLAGS="-lncurses" ./make

I chose the first option with the configure command

I got this:

Ummm, I'm behind on checking my emails, but I don't see where anyone
responded to this one. If your file is really named 'menu.1st' instead
of 'menu.lst' - with a lower-case 'ell' - that would explain quite a
bit.

Chapter 7: Symlinks to Devices and udevtest

Everything was going along swimmingly with 6.3 until I hit chapter 7,
symlinks to devices and udev...

How is udevtest supposed to work? On my system, udevtest /sys/block/hdd
gives:

This program is for debugging only, it does not run any program,
specified by a RUN key. It may show incorrect results, because
some values may be different, or not available at a simulation run.

Clearly that's not right. When I do a mount I see that my dvd drive is

LFS 6.3 6.59 Stripping Again

I am scripting a build of LFS 6.3 and I would like to be able to skip 6.59 
Stripping Again by adding CFLAGS=-s to the bashrc environment, then building 
all the packages.

Will this cause any error?

Or is there a better way to build the packages without the symbol info?

Thank you

FW: raid & grub

I think this message may not have been posted.

- Mark
==========================

I think I may have just wasted a day and a half of compiling.

I have a system that has three SATA drives in it, two in a RAID1 mirror
array and one standalone. The ASUS P5K-E motherboard has the Intel RAID
chipset on it, so I configured the mirror array in hardware.

I was able to install slackware and build LFS on two separate partitions of
the array. At least, I think they got installed on the array; I accessed
them via /dev/sda2 and /dev/sda3 (/dev/sda1 is swap space).

Unfortunately, when I try to boot the system it acts like there is no
bootloader in it (i.e., the hardware prompts me to insert a bootable device
and press any key to continue).

Yet I can boot either the slackware system or the LFS system by using RIP
(Rescue Is Possible) and specifying either /dev/sda2 or /dev/sda3 as the
root device.

Questions:

1) Do I actually have a RAID system or not? How can I tell if linux is
recognizing the RAID array as an array and not two separate drives?
2) If LFS and slackware are not recognizing the RAID array, how do I get
them to do that? Is there any way, short of re-installing everything, to get
the array recognized?

Problem with LFS 6.3

Hi all, I'm new to LFS and I've got a problem.
After building correctly with JHALFS, I've tryied to change root
password inside chroot but passwd doesn't work.

If i run:

"passwd root", command exit imediatly with: "
Cambio della password di root
Inserire la nuova password (minimo 5 caratteri, massimo 127)
Utilizzare una combinazione di lettere maiuscole, minuscole e numeri.
Password non valida: troppo corta.  
Attenzione: password troppo debole (inserirla di nuovo per usarla
comunque).
Password cambiata.
"

no password asked.

Man page also not working, exit code 256.

Anybody can help me?

Sorry for my bad english but I'm italian.

(just now i'm downloading the LiveCD and I'll start over again from cd)
