7.1. Introduction

This chapter shows how to complete the build of temporary tools to create a minimal system that will be used to boot the target machine and to build the final system packages.

There are a few additional packages that will need to be installed to allow you to boot the minimal system. Some of these packages will be installed onto root or in /usr on the CLFS partition (${CLFS}/bin, ${CLFS}/usr/bin, etc...), rather than /tools, using the "DESTDIR" option with make. This will require the clfs user to have write access to the rest of the CLFS partition, so you will need to temporarily change the ownership of ${CLFS} to the clfs user. Run the following command as root:

chown -v clfs ${CLFS}
