[586feb7]11  <title>About $CLFS</title>
13  <para>Throughout this book, the environment variable <envar>LFS</envar> will
14  be used several times. It is paramount that this variable is always defined.
15  It should be set to the mount point chosen for the CLFS partition.
16  Check that the <envar>LFS</envar> variable is set up properly with:</para>
[586feb7]18<screen><userinput>echo $CLFS</userinput></screen>
20  <para>Make sure the output shows the path to the CLFS partition's mount
21  point, which is <filename class="directory">/mnt/lfs</filename> if the
22  provided example was followed. If the output is incorrect, the
23  variable can be set with:</para>
[586feb7]25<screen><userinput>export CLFS=/mnt/lfs</userinput></screen>
27  <para>Having this variable set is beneficial in that commands such as
[586feb7]28  <command>install -d $CLFS/tools</command> can be typed literally. The shell
29  will automatically replace <quote>$CLFS</quote> with
[02095ae]30  <quote>/mnt/lfs</quote> (or whatever the variable was set to) when it
31  processes the command line.</para>
[586feb7]33  <para>If you haven't created the <filename class="directory">$CLFS</filename>
[02095ae]34  directory, do so at this time by issuing the following commands:</para>
[586feb7]36<screen><userinput>install -dv $CLFS</userinput></screen>
[586feb7]38  <para>Do not forget to check that <envar>$CLFS</envar> is set whenever
[02095ae]39  you leave and reenter the current working environment (as when doing a
40  <quote>su</quote> to <systemitem class="username">root</systemitem> or
41  another user).</para>
