13  <para> Create a directory for the CLFS build.  The exact location is up to you
14    but depending on the location you choose, you may need to do this as the
15    root user: </para>

19  <para>Assign it to the <envar>CLFS</envar> environment variable:</para>

23  <para>Ensure that this new directory has permissions that are not too
24    restrictive such that you can write to it as a non-root user.  Depending on
25    the location of the <envar>CLFS</envar> directory, you may need to do this
26    as the root user:</para>
27
28<screen><userinput>chmod 777 ${CLFS}</userinput></screen>

30  <para>Downloaded packages and patches will need to be stored somewhere
31  that is conveniently available throughout the entire build. A working
32  directory is also required to unpack the sources and build them.
33  <filename class="directory">${CLFS}/sources</filename> can be used both
34  as the place to store the tarballs and patches and as a working
35  directory.</para>
