1) Please don't top-post - it's much easier to read an email from top to bottom, than bottom to top
2) Please try to have your email client post in plain text; again, it's much easier to read
3) The syntax for chown is 'chown user:group' not 'chown group:user'
4) Do you have an entry in /etc/hosts for your 'lfs' server?

Hi Matt,

Thank you very much for your help. I had an entry in /etc/hosts , but I had forgot to add an alias (lfs).

Now, everything works !


P.S. Hope I have persuaded my email program to send in plain text !
