I've been trying to get LFS to work with 2.2.16. And so far, I've had no
luck. I've used the patches against 2.2.16, found at
ftp://ftp.scyld.com/pub/lfs/lfs-1.2.0.tar.gz which applied cleanly.

After building the kernel, and a reboot. I recompiled the libc6 (2.1.3-13)
deb with LINUX_SOURCE set to the location of the patched kernel tree. After
installing the fresh .deb's and another reboot, I attempted to recompile
fileutils (4.0l-8)... However, fileutils configure script does not detect
'large file support.' The relevant lines from the configure script output

checking for _FILE_OFFSET_BITS... 64
checking for _LARGEFILE_SOURCE... no
checking for _LARGE_FILES... no

Does anyone have LFS working on a potato installation?
