 Dear Randy,

 If you have read my ticket carefully then you would have discovered that I
 have mentioned nothing about any book failure. The ticket was no criticism
 and marked as ENHANCEMENT.

 Please understand that I am trying to install this LFS system from
 scratch. It is a lot of work but I do expect good results (currently using
 Gentoo and not completely happy with it).

 After my (first) failure of looking over an important line in the book, I
 am indeed more careful.

 I say it is a damn GOOD book, and I do know some of linux, but not as much
 as you kind a people.

 I also say, it is a valid ticket for people who are not 1000% perfect.

 The penalty for me being not that 1000% perfect was ...
 ... spending 2 more hours on troubleshooting and rebuilding.

 Still and again, I do stress this is my own im-perfectness and I will
 definitely improve, but after a few hours of reading carefully and doing a
 manual installation on my gentoo system, I guess anyone would loose a few
 percent of that perfectness. I feel that, it could have been prevented and
 some people must agree on this, because all other important sections are

 Anyway, thanks for the speedy reaction.

 you stated 'why would this one be special'

 That is a valid question, and the valid answer is: IT IS SPECIAL !


 Please remove that mark also, and lots of people could then be marked by
 you as not reading the book carefully.

 Again: the book is awfully good, but I do feel that my ticket was thrown
 away pretty fast.

 By the way, I have already solved my problem, so my effort of writing
 ticket 1703 was just on behalf of other people who might want to go for

 Obviously you did see my point.

 I kindly ask to consider re-opening ticket 1703, on behalf of possible LFS
 users and an even more perfect book.
