BLFS-svn package dwnload


I was wondering how you download a directory of files from an ftp site, the current testing blfs is the one that goes with LFS 6.2 but there is no grouping and i'd rather not download each package seperately

thanks

Hi there, zkillz,
If you have built LFS-6.2 (the version says you did it very recently), why don't you follow the stable BLFS-6.1? My LFS is 6.1.1 and I am using the BLFS-6.1 manual with no slightest problem.
hm ... why would you need svn at all?

Good luck!

i havent built anything yet and i actually am going with 6.1 but it still requires downloading folders of files instead of just one package. but i am using gFTP and its great cause it resumes files and it works with directories. but thanks anyway

What folders of files? There are no folders you have to download.
What single package do you expect? It's not a single package -- it's "scratches" you have to build your system from.
To get it straight :
1. Read the LFS book, the book is good (=RBBG)
2. Download the packages from p. 3.2
3. Follow the book and build everything - get the core system
4. Start thinking about BLFS, HLFS or whatever

Good luck!!!
