I'm having problems here, trying to install LFS 2.3.4 from a working LFS 2.2
system. The 2.2 system now has bash-2.04, and glibc gives me the invalid
character problem if you try and install it normally. If you edit the
Makefiles and take the hyphens out, then it appears to install normally, but
upon entering the chrooted environment, then you get segmentation faults as
soon as you try to install anything (apart from ed-0.02). You (I) get the
segmentation faults when you install normally too.
Reding the documentation of glibc, I noticed it says not to compile as root.
Could this be where I was going wrong? Haven't had time to recompile yet, as
it takes ages (well over four hours).
