NEWB's adventure's in Linux From Scratch

More troubles,

I got through gcc and am now install glibc again... have an error that's one that was documented in LFS ... so much for that one "do check" it was because I didn't have all my filesystems mounted.

I had one on gmp install that might prove useful, when running configure

I had to add ABI=32 as a suffix to configure as gmp couldn't find it , so I had to pass it in configure.

Another note on "ccache" is seems that it's use in command line is not supported in this version of gcc. not as a command line arguement anyways. the only way to use it is link it against gcc or add to bashrc it seems. Have to wait till I get past the "big three" before I enable it again.

Got all the way to Perl and got this:

ext/Sys/Syslog/t/syslog.....# Failed test 'setlogsock() should return true: '''
# at ../ext/Sys/Syslog/t/syslog.t line 204
FAILED at test 176

then found this on the web:

sed -i.bak \
"/if grep/a skip \"not testing setlogsock('stream'): _PATH_LOG unavailable\", 10 \
unless -e Sys::Syslog::_PATH_LOG();" \
now perl compiles and test fine :
this is the upstream for this fix:


There is so much going on that I just don't understand, good thing there's Google :)
