Rebooting the system

Now that all software has been installed, bootscripts have been created, it's time to reboot the computer. Run a command like /sbin/shutdown -r now or /sbin/reboot to reboot your system and at the LILO: prompt make sure that you tell it to boot lfs.

During the first boot you will get a few errors from syslogd and klogd. These errors occur because we haven't setup networking yet. That will be taken care of in the next chapter. So don't worry about those errors for now.

As just stated, one thing remains to be done and that's setting up networking. After having rebooted and finished the next chapter of this book the LFS system is completely ready for use, and you can start adding your own software.
