Weird thing with LessTif-0.95.0 and ImageMagick-6.3.5-10

Build BLFS svn-20090124
On 16GB USB2.0 stick
Kernel 2.6.27.4

Here's a weird thing:

In my .mwmrc file the line:

"ImageMagick-6.3.5-10"  f.exec "/usr/bin/display"

does not work and my .xsession-errors file states that it can't execute /usr/bin/display

However when I run /usr/bin/display from an xterm window ImageMagick starts up with no problem.

Also if I change my .mwmrc file to read:

"ImageMagick-6.3.5-10"  f.exec "xterm -e /usr/bin/display"

ImageMagick starts up ok (albeit with an xterm window behind it)

Anyone got any ideas about this?

Thanks,
Gary

mpfr-2.3.2.tar.gz in LFS 6.4 wget list not found

Hi,

A minor bug report just for the sake of a potential googler.

In 
 http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/downloads/6.4/LFS-BOOK-6.4-wget-list

        http://www.mpfr.org/mpfr-current/mpfr-2.3.2.tar.bz2

should be replaced with:

        http://www.mpfr.org/mpfr-2.3.2/mpfr-2.3.2.tar.bz2

Re: Grub: Error 21, Selected disk does not exist

Hi,

  Usually the command

find /boot/grub/stage1

will give the disk were grub stage1 is present

------------------------------------
grub> find /boot/grub/stage1
 (hd0,1)
 (hd0,2)
 (hd0,7)
------------------------------------

Are you able to get that ?

Also in sda I can see only 4 partitions, so there will not be any (hd0,4)

Like :

------------------------------------------
/dev/sda1 (hd0,0)
/dev/sda2 (hd0,1)
/dev/sda5 (hd0,2)
/dev/sda6 (hd0,3)
------------------------------------------

Is root (hd0,3) is working for you ?

There's already a ticket for this at

    http://wiki.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/ticket/2355

However the URL  you have found is better than  the suggestion to link
to the LFS site.  Could you mention it in a new comment to the ticket?

Regards,

Jeremy Henty

Re: Grub: Error 21, Selected disk does not exist


I tried the following, and it still wouldn't return anything.  After playing around for a bit, I somehow was
able to get cd0 and fd0 to appear.  I took a look in the /dev/ folder, and it was pretty much empty.  I'm not sure
why I didn't look any sooner.  Running on a laptop, I had to shut down my computer several times during the
book when I had to go to work or something.  Apparently, I missed the page when we copied the /dev/ folder from
the host system to the build.  Rerunning that command solved all my issues.  Thanks so much for the help!

rt61

Hello all,

Has anyone had any luck getting the rt61 module to compile? I downloaded 
the one on sourceforge (no idea if there's a newer one elsewhere or 
compiled into the kernel - I couldn't find it), and compiled it within 
the LFS system. Attached is an almost complete log from make (for some 
reason, one or two lines randomly got missed out, no idea why).

The lspci output for my WiFi card on the previous distro (Kubuntu 8.10, 
where it works perfectly and uses the rt61pci module) is "05:01.0 
Network controller: RaLink RT2600 802.11 MIMO", so any other drivers 
compatible with this will do just fine for me.

Thanks,
Muzer.

PS: I didn't see anything about WiFi in LFS itself. Is there anything 
about stuff like this in BLFS? I have to use WiFi to connect to the 
internet as I am not in the same room as the router and don't really 
want to move my PC, or invest in long cables or anything else.

Try this site, there are the actual files:

The WiFi stuff is in BLFS.

Re: rt61

Hi Michael,

Thanks a lot! That one built perfectly, and is now detected by udev and 
set up as wlan0. Tomorrow I'll look at BLFS and attempt to set up the 
wifi tools. Thanks again!

Muzer.

PS: I assume since there isn't a BLFS 6.4 at the moment, they try to 
keep the BLFS CVS reasonably stable for all the people who need a BLFS 
for LFS 6.4? Don't want to end up breaking it ;)

 Technically, neither BLFS nor LFS have used CVS for many years.
But to answer the question I _think_ you are asking:

 Some of BLFS-dev has been updated since BLFS-6.3.  Much of it has
not yet been updated.  Please look at the archives for blfs-dev and
blfs-support for the last 5 or 6 months (and the trac tickets for
BLFS-6.4 or future - you will probably want newer versions of many
things).
