(aka, it's a 
good candidate for the LFS errata page.)

Tough question. The problem while Jeremy Huntwork was the project leader 
was that exactly the same versions of packages had to be used in the 
book and on the LiveCD (with the exception of ncurses because of "xterm 
-lc" compatibility needed for i18n purposes). I'd rather ask Justin to 
build the 6.1-4 CD with the following fixes:

* binutils md5sum issue resolved
* glibc-2.3.4 with the patch from

This, however, still brings up the issue that the nALFS profile on the 
CD doesn't contain the glibc patch, so this CD would be rather useless 
right now. I CC:ed the ALFS list, let's see if they do something for us 

In the meanwhile, you can just use the 6.x-utf8-r0 CD: it contains 
glibc-2.3.5, but it is not based on any released LFS book. But it still 
contains a profile that builds glibc-2.3.4 without the patch :(
