Install VLC in linux

You'll have to install it once with

Code:

Code:
apt-zip-list -p vlc --medium=/home/username/Desktop -s

LFS 7.1 on Ubuntu 12.04

Posted 07-21-2012 at 12:33 PM by druuna
Updated 01-31-2014 at 04:23 AM by druuna (Updated to current situation.)

I noticed that a lot of people try to build LFS using Ubuntu as host and are struggling, this article describes how to make Ubuntu compliant, create the partition and lfs user and set up the toolchain (basically chapters 1 to 5.9).

Warning: The latest stable LFS version is not 7.1.
The information below can be used as a reference for newer LFS versions. Do keep in mind that steps/actions are probably (slightly?) different in newer versions!
