NEWB's adventure's in Linux From Scratch


 I'm back and I've got an update. I tried to reboot and failed so , I backed up my Crunchbang menu.lst to menu.old and reinstalled grub to the MBR.  Then reinstalled the kernel. I decided to boot to a prompt rather than edit grub menu.lst again. booted and got  Error : file not found  OK... now what do I do?  Well , I erased everything after the kernel arguement except for the forward slash / and hit tab........... it seems I don't need /boot just lfskernel.....  so I try to boot again and get "Warning" failed to open initial console , failed to execute /bin/bb   I tried Google and got the "root" arguement is wrong. Redid the root=to the real root instead of  boot partition and it booted !!!

I've got the bash prompt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've finally did it !!!!!!!!!! I've built LFS to a bash prompt!!!!!!!!! YIPPEE!!!!!! networking works and all.

I plan on recapping the most notorious errors I've had over the past month or so and writing a blog specifically on the issues that were the most difficult part of the build for a newbie.  

 Good luck all who try this endevor.
