LFS by a newbie, part deux progress report...

Posted 01-07-2007 at 05:05 AM by threekgtvr4

Well, since my last post on building <a href="http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/">LFS 6.2</a>, I've completed chapter 5 with no further problems and moved on to chapter 6. I should have finished with the LFS build in 8 days, but it's taking me some extra time because I am using the <a href="http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/hints/downloads/files/more_control_and_pkg_man.txt">More Control and Package Management Using Package Users</a> hint. The reason it's...

Linux From Scratch by a newbie, part deux...

A live CD also gives you the ability to use a completely blank hard drive for your installation and I don't think you can actually screw up a live CD like you can an installed distribution (someone...

LFS (Linux From Scratch) for people new to Linux

Posted 05-01-2006 at 12:53 AM by threekgtvr4

Here is my first blog on this forum. Since I have been enjoying this site since I found it, I figured "might as well"... This blog will show the fun and headaches in building a Linux From Scratch (LFS) system from the eyes of someone who is VERY new to Linux.

Since this blog is being written as I learn, the "teachings" may jump around from time to time. Eventually this "tutorial" will be posted to the Do It Yourself portion of my site, and will be more...
