Yeah - it's the latest Raspian but it's not exactly vanilla, I've installed and uninstalled a lot of stuff.
In terms of the LFS scripts I followed the advice on setting up the disk with partitions, setting up the lfs user and setting up the lfs environment variables. I then used the scripts here: http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/vie ... treqs.html
to make sure I had all the stuff installed (I didn't so a vanilla Raspbian wouldn't either) and sudo apt-get installed the ones I didn't.
The other issue I noticed with the scripts on the pilfs site (thanks for creating it by the way - I wouldn't have been able to do this without it!) was the URLs for the patches referred to in the wget file are all out of date. I found the bash patch (the only one needed for the tools build) at http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/patches/downloads/bash/
so I'm hoping the others would be in a similar directory?
My tools build has finished now, took ~24 hours with the Pi overclocked to high.
Once I've updated the wget script with the new patch locations I'll give Ch6 a go (I've imaged my SD card in case there's any problems...).
