Create an Intall version CD of BLFS


Hi ppl

I am n00by in BLFS, so do not laugh ( much ) if my question is stoopid...

Is it possible, after creating a customized linux Distro ( (B)LFS ) to create an installable version of it...? an iso to be burned into a CD or DVD...?

To answer your question, yes, it is possible to do that.

Hi crts

First, I would like to thank you for replying,

Second, If I annoyed anybody, it was not my intent to do it, so, if i annoyed you, i am sorry for that,

Third, If i write like this it is ment to be funny, not so serve as any form of characterization of my age or mental development status, in Japan we refer to this form of expression as kawaii, meaning cute, cool, funny, but by no means less repectfull or serious.

EDIT: Well back to topic How does one make this, creating an installable BLFS...?

Hey Alexvader

Now, huh
I know nothing about BLFS...

But, if you patch your kernel,etc for aufs,squashfs,lzma and use Linux Live Scripts on it
it will create a distro from your installed system that runs just like Slax, with persistency,etc off cd/usb/hdd

what kernel version does your BLFS install run??

I am currently compiling slack 12.2's 2.6.27.31 kernel and patching
LinuxLiveScripts has premade 2.6.27.27 kernel too

tell me what kernel your runinng

EDIT:
As for installing it
you would need to "make" a install script/py,etc
or modify someone elses
like Vector's Lite Live Final, which is kinda made with LinuxLiveScritps but they added stuff
Vector Lite Live lets you remaster your installed system

Hi Linus72

I have not yet begun my adventures in (B)LFS, I am learning, watching forum, reading... as soon as i find courage, and time, to start creating a BLFS, i will tell you.

About Slack I run the good'ol 2.6.29.6 in one machine and 2.6.32.7 in another...~

Is it really difficult to deploy/create a (B)LFS...?

I heard it was pretty hard dude...BLFS,etc

I'm gettin ready to install SourceMage
which is pretty hard too...

since you run slack
maybe practice on a 12.2/13 install with LinuxLiveScripts making a livecd/usb of your slack setup

Thats how I made these

http://linux.softpedia.com/get/Syste...SB-55041.shtml

http://linux.softpedia.com/get/Syste...86-54962.shtml

trying to make 13 with 13's kernel...those above use 2.6.27.27 from LLS

Yep... compiling a kernel...

Is there any net gain of performance in building a (B)LFS system, as comparing to optimized Lightweight distros like Slackware or Arch...?

I am building this in Arch...

https://computation.llnl.gov/casc/Overture/

and this

http://www.dealii.org/

Those two will constitute a framework for the analysis of aeroelastic interations like flutter instability in aicraft

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science...50fac216de08e2

I already compiled Overture with Intel compilers, I will build Dealii tomorrow... but i will still have do create the solvers...

Those two packages only create classes and libraries for me to develop stuff...

I know... but Brazillians are no lesser hot...

There was this Geisha, in the 30s-40s, wartime, portrayed in a movie called "Memoirs of a Geisha" as Nitta Sayuri, she came to be the most renowned Geisha of Tokyo at her time...

...It is said that she was so hot and beautiful that with one single glance she would stop anyone walking by...

... her look was like... remember the traction beam of Death Star in star wars...? no escape...

hahahah....was just curious how your build has been going. it would seem that both of you are much more advanced than i am; however, i have been considering building my own install as well. was just wondering if the performance gain was that great. also, in regards to tracking down deps for programs...its alot of work once you go out on your own with a custom build isnt it?


hope all is well,

Hi Mrnemo

Sorry for late answer...

no... I am not more advanced ... at least not in terms of progression

I am building up the knowledge and getting to know the quirks involved in building LFS...

But for the time being I have been more involved w/ stuff at work...

optimal layout of composite fiber orientation to maximize specific stiffness of a mechanical component...

lots of FEA, CAD, redesign, reanalyze...

Heavy numerics for the workstation...
