All Okay. Very big grin.

Here we go, show how lame I am. I didn't know how to check what mine is
so I used dselect, went straight to select what to install and when
through the existing list with search:

libc5		5.4.46-3 	installed (Opt old libs)
libc6 	installed (Req base)
glibc-pre2.1	2.0.105-2 	not installed

I must admit I don't understand this libc and glibc business. I'm
guessing that they are C libraries and that glibc is the Gnu version but
what difference it makes having one over the other is beyond my current

I suppose this is more a general Linux topic than LFS, perhaps this reply
ought to go there... except I'm not subscribed there.
