To create this directory, execute the following command, as user root, before starting the download session:
mkdir -v $LFS/sources

Make this directory writable and sticky. “Sticky” means that even if multiple users have write permission on a directory, only the owner of a file can delete the file within a sticky directory. The following command will enable the write and sticky modes:
chmod -v a+wt $LFS/sources

An easy way to download all of the packages and patches is by using wget-list as an input to wget.
