I'm trying to build an LFS system but I've hit a roadbloack, what am I supposed to do for the 2nd passes. I thought maybe I had to re-untar again then compile their but that didn't make a new directory, then I thought a build directory had to be made inside the existing folder but that doesn't work out either, then I tried building inside the existing build directory, then I made a build directory INSIDE the build directory but both did not help at all. I don't imagine I need to include code as I'm certain the processes I've used were incorrect. Any help would be very appreciated thanks!
Chapter 5.3, more precisely the second Important box, tells you to extract the package, go to the directory that was created by the extracting process, follow the instructions, go back to the parent directory and delete the extracted sources.
So yes, you have to untar again, since you deleted the extracted directory structure.
Most (all?) instructions ask you to make a
build directory in the top of the extracted structure.
