Hi,

Do you want to build an LFS system using zsh or do you want to use zsh as your daily shell to work on?

If it is the last (daily use) have a look at this BLFS chapter: Introduction to ZSH

Hope this helps.

I'm not aware of any hint/book that covers this. Most, if not all, Linux distro's are bash based (I do know of a Unix system that is ksh based) so I think you could say bash is the backbone.

You can always give it a try.

Let us know your experiences if you do decide to try this!
