Indeed he has

6.47.1. Installation of GRUB

Fix an incompatibility between this package and Glibc-2.17:

sed -i -e '/gets is a/d' grub-core/gnulib/

Prepare GRUB for compilation:

./configure --prefix=/usr \
--sysconfdir=/etc \
--disable-grub-emu-usb \
--disable-efiemu \

The --disable-werror option allows the build to complete with warnings introduced by more recent flex versions. The other --disable switches minimize what is built by disabling features and testing programs not needed for LFS.

Compile the package:


This package does not come with a test suite.

Install the package:

make install

Using GRUB to make your LFS system bootable will be discussed in Section 8.4, “Using GRUB to Set Up the Boot Process”.
6.47.2. Contents of GRUB
Installed programs: grub-bios-setup, grub-editenv, grub-fstest, grub-install, grub-kbdcomp, grub-menulst2cfg, grub-mkconfig, grub-mkimage, grub-mklayout, grub-mknetdir, grub-mkpasswd-pbkdf2, grub-mkrelpath, grub-mkrescue, grub-mkstandalone, grub-ofpathname, grub-probe, grub-reboot, grub-script-check, grub-set-default, grub-sparc64-setup
Installed directories: /usr/lib/grub, /etc/grub.d, /usr/share/grub, /boot/grub

I haven't had the error message on any of the boards for a while, but I get them when using Messages.

EVERY TIME I send a message to someone (usually the first contact message) I get the error message. Usually the message is sent.......... I check now, because I don't want to send the message multiple times.

Ofcourse, it NEVER happens when "the team" try it.

My annoying error is when I have s few pages ope and move between my tree and say Ancestry or any other site. Each time I go back to my tree it takes me back to my home person, me and not to the person that I left open and have just taken info from Ancestry for.

Apparently there is some internet war going on which is slowing the internet.


Bobtanian Report 28 Mar 2013 17:53

you know, if you remember back to the early days of Free BMD, how dreadfully slow it was, and the solution offered was to access the site in the middle of the night when theoretically it would be less busy.........

this site is actually worse than that in my opinion.........

I see Sparkling Sandie started a similar thread yesterday - it is annoying! I won't say that it completely spoils the games threads, but it nearly does!

I can't view other trees with more than 20,000 names! GR said it's because I don't have the right IE.

I don't understand that, because I could see large trees (well over 20,000) until recently.

My computer is OLD! It won't accept updates of IE. I don't have a problem with any other website. No way am I buying a new computer just to see a tree on GR.
