linux from scratch, GUI & vmware
i'm new to this stuff - i just recently downloaded LFS (v 6.2 for 32 bit x86).
i then proceeded to create my virtual machine - vmdk file created using qemu. created a vmx file pointing to the vmdk and the LFS iso. everything's running smoothly, i'm following the instructions given in the LFS pdf, mounted my partitions, i've got my swap. then i reach the part where it says to download packages. i switch to xfce desktop env by typing startx. everything is still smooth. then next i decide to power down my virtual machine and come back later. power down, all good.
now here's where the problem starts. i come back and try to restart my VM and it just hangs after the POST stuff.... i tried creating things from scratch again. everytime i try to restart it hangs. any ideas?
