Did you set up the working environment in chapter 4 again after you
turned the computer back on? You can't just su - lfs. You have to
mount /mnt/lfs on the hard drive again and you have to export
$LFS=/mnt/lfs and then set up chapter 6 and then chroot. If you did
not do all of that you will get errors in chapter chroot because your
build environment is not correct.
