Yes, I used the live cd to build my LFS which uses LFS 6.3, and I'm following BLFS 6.3. I could try to build KDE according to the development BLFS 6.5. I could also try to search the Internet for terms in the error log that I sent (sorry that I didn't do this first; I didn't have time). Alternatively, I could try installing another desktop environment such as Gnome. I have been using GNU/Linux for about 2 years now (one year with Open Suse 10.3/11.0 and one year with Ubuntu 8.04-9.10), but I'm fairly new to the command line and this is my first time successfully building LFS (I once tried LFS 6.5, but it had a kernel panic). I'm not a programmer or a Linux guru (however, I'm comfortable with ./configure, make, and make install), so I was wondering if anyone had any ideas about what might have went wrong based on the error log that I sent earlier. If you need me to send more information, just ask. Any advice is welcome, but especially easy to understand advice since I'm still learning.
