Changes to Glibc text

Reported by: chris@… Owned by: lfs-book@…
Priority: normal Milestone: 7.10
Component: Book Version: SVN
Severity: normal Keywords:


A few suggestions for the Chapter 6 Glibc page:

  • I don't see any need for the Note about iconv(). I don't recall actually seeing any packages that recommend installing libiconv, and I think it's one of those things where anyone who cares will probably already know and won't need to be told about it by LFS.
  • I think the paragraph about how Glibc will build fine despite the toolchain pointing to /tools should be made a Note, and should be at the top of the page.
  • I think the sentence describing installation of locales could be slightly reworded. The current phrasing, specifying that the locales were not installed by the "make install", seems to imply that the user should expect them to be, and I don't believe a new builder would. I believe instead of:
    The locales that can make the system respond in a different language were not installed by the above command.
    It should read something like:
    Next, install the locales that can make the system respond in a different language.

Any further thoughts on these modifications?
