Building LFS 6.3(4) on PPC directly without using CLFS
 
Just wondering what deviation from the LFS 6.3 book is required to get the system up and running on PPC (iBook G3) without the use of CLFS, I realise yaBoot is the only bootloader available for this application but is there much more than that? Is this project even viable at all? Also, if anyone could point me in the direction of a useful (current) hint/tutorial on this subject it would be great, I have had a good look but may have missed something gold.

Cheers in advance,
Dion

In my understanding, "pure" LFS really only works with 32-bit x86 builds. Other, more experienced LFSers have said the same.

Is there a (good) reason you don't want to use CLFS? The PPC version of the book seems to have what you're looking for otherwise.

Clfs/blfs?

Unfortunately the CLFS system while current, is not suitable as I am more interested in what I can to with BLFS once the base system is built. I have built a couple of LFS/BLFS systems in the past and have found the results extremely satisfying but do not think I have enough experience to build my own CLFS/BLFS equivalent, yes I've heard that there are some community projects surrounding Beyond CLFS, but I would prefer BLFS as it is a solid, reliable and straight forward reference to use. Any more idea's where I could go from here? Does anyone know which BLFS is most compatible with the current CLFS (1.1 I think) or maybe should I just try and blunder through a LFS PPC build.

Cheers and thanks in advance =D

CBLFS is the project recommended in the "What Now?" section of the CLFS book:

Quote:

The Community Driven Beyond Linux From Scratch wiki covers installation procedures for a wide range of software beyond the scope of the CLFS Book. CBLFS is designed specifically to work with the CLFS book, and has all the necessary information to continue the builds in the same manner that CLFS uses.
Is that the one you'd heard about? It's worth taking a good look through it before you dismiss it out of hand.
