#4445 closed task (invalid)

Rename /tools

Description

A discussion came up in lfs-support "[lfs-support] Potential damage of $LFS/tools setting in section 4.2 and 4.3 of LFS book.".

Within that thread, one said that newer Ubuntu/Debian distros do use /tools. This collides with our naming.

1) Analyze if its true that they use /tools

2) If yes, rename our /tools to something else

Suggestions made: /lfs_stage1, /lfs_tmp_toolchain or simply /lfs

Before we jump to conclusions, we need to verify the problem. What iso produced this problem?

Replying to bdubbs:

thats what i wanted to express with "1)" - we definitly need to have a look first before we touch that name.

ISO? Don't know, they talked about Ubuntu/Debian.

Resolution: invalid
Status: newclosed

Closing as invalid since no one has provided a distro that has /tools by default. I suspect a user error when inatilling /tools and/or $LFS/tools.

Just as a final confirmation (taken in VMWare with Ubuntu Daily):

renodr@renodr-virtual-machine:~$ ls /
bin   cdrom  etc   initrd.img      lib    lib64   lost+found  mnt  proc  run   snap  swapfile  tmp  var
boot  dev    home  initrd.img.old  lib32  libx32  media       opt  root  sbin  srv   sys       usr  vmlinuz

Strange :-) Looks like it was a rumor. And maybe the /tools dir the reporter complained about was left there from a previous try doing LFS.
