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!

I remember waiting for something bad to happen to the A:> (a-prompt) on my amber monochrome screen.

There were no programs available other than a dull calendar, at the time supplied on a 5.25"...

1) A good start: Ubuntu started with a strong background. It wasn’t “yet another” distribution, it was a distribution that had a vision and enough people and money behind it to support that vision.

2) Easy and straightforward installation: From the text-based installer of the first few versions, to the point&click installer of today, ubuntu always had a very straightforward and simple installation. Every step of the installer was explained in a short, yet clear manner that made...

Skype problem

Updated Skype, video wouldn't work and it made my voice sound like donald duck!

Have discovered that with some installations Skype video won't work.
So....Try adding this as the properties of a shortcut:

(System >Preferences >Keyboard Shortcuts)

env LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib32/libv4l/ skype

I've saved mine as Ctrl + Alt + S

No more problems..
