View Full Version : Help with LFS

July 23rd, 2009, 07:31 AM
Hi i've been using ubuntu for some time
i decided to build a lfs system reading the book lfs 6.4

i've been able to successfully start my computer
but there's an error message that i get
while the initial scripts are started

line 27 hostname command not found

and my login prompt is
(none) login:

it appears that hostname isn't installed
which package source can i find hostname in
or is it that perhaps it is installed some place else and i need a symlink

i'd appreciate if you could help me with this
