I got all the way to point 14 in the Pass 2, with no errors (a couple of typos !!) and there is an error in building tzdata
'Error building /root/development/base/tzdata/tzdata1495932294x86_64.cards.tar.xz failed;
Pkgfile: line 15 : zic command not found...
All this time, and careful effort and disappointment... Any suggestions would be welcomed......I have followed your instructions very pedantically, and this is the only error I have had.. Pass1 went through with no problems....
Have a good weekend
Richard ........Oh yes, the laptop has a brand new install of NuTyX on /dev/sda1, only the base install (upgraded) and cards.devel.. No graphics, as I wanted to have a clean base system to use as the host..The' Build your own' is on sda2... both ext4 partitions.. I,ll use the host grub to point to both systems
