Milestone in progress.

Posted 09-25-2013 at 06:40 PM by ReaperX7

Today I successfully installed Midori Browser into Xfce and have Xfce set as my default desktop environment using startx. This for me is a huge milestone because now I can graphically surf the web and work on LFS equally.

However, I have hit a snag with Parole Media Player. It doesn't work, so if anyone can help me with the bug, please do as I have a post in the LFS section regarding it.

If all things proceed as planned, I aim to have a few more packages added soon...

I'm now working on the X Forms Common Environment (Xfce) UI to give me a basic desktop environment to work from and after that I'll be looking into the Xfce applications as well.

LFS-7.4 and BLFS-7.4

Posted 09-16-2013 at 08:40 PM by ReaperX7

I've been tinkering with a build of LFS-7.4 and BLFS-7.4 (basically a post-Developer release of the SVN edition I have), and have learned a lot of GNU/Linux as of late.

Currently I'm in the middle of Chapter 24 X-Windows system and just finished building the xorg drivers before I left for work.

I've also gotten partially through Chapter 4 Security, but I want to wait until I get X11 up and running with Xfce and all apps especially Midori Browser, installed through a...
