Hello !

Xorg is an X server, it that piece of software that handles all the graphical stuff ... So no GUI without Xorg or XFree ... You can build it in BLFS, after your LFS is perfect ...

hey, biniou

Thanx for explainin me what xorg is. I'll find it difficult to make my LFS perfect (I don't know even if I'll ever finish it). I finished chapter 5. I changed the ownership of the $LFS/tools folder and now how can I shut down my computer? What do I need to type next time I start the live cd? Thanx!

P.S. Ignore the next text, it's a stupid program, that got stuck in my computer (windows safety system sucks)

I don't think shutting down in the middle of the build is recommended; however, I also know that building one of these systems can take days, and you can't always leave the computer running for that whole time. :-P

The command to shutdown should be "shutdown -h now" (shutdown = command to shut down, -h = halt, now = do it now instead of later).

After you start up again (and anyone else feel free to correct me if I'm wrong :-P), I think you'd have to make sure $LFS was set again (export LFS=/mnt/lfs), then redo the commands in 2.4 Mounting the New Partition, then continue on from the beginning of chapter 6.
