Good for you?

Nah, just messing with you. LFS is great to work with.... You get lots of experience, and most of all, you have fun too, building LFS. How are you liking it?

You might want to take a look at BLFS chapter 3 - After LFS Configuration Issues. It will add some niceties and structure to what you have done this far building LFS.

Have fun using LFS!

yeah i know that no one cares. but this is the place for such notes so my posts rather for me than for others.
about lots of experience - i dont think you will become megaexperienced after building LFS with help of book.
sometimes i was feeling like a monkey that copy/paste commands.
and i cant call myself a noob coz im kernel developer for some proprietary patched kernels )
about fun. there were not too much. it looks like only few people who started to build lfs by typing commands
from books are able to finish it. i dont have any statistics but feel like that.
and what do i finally get? it's still a black box with lots of unneeded and unknown stuff.
i hope i will feel better when i rewrite boot scripts.

If this wasn't actually meant for invoking comments, can I suggest you use your LQ blog for those comments? (Right pane: My LQ -> My Blog)

As you might have noticed, we do care and will reply if we think we can contribute

Building LFS will give you an inside in how Linux works, how things depend on each other and work together. A certain level of existing knowledge of Linux/Unix system administration is even expected when you start (you don't need it, but then it will be a mere copy/paste exercise). You will not become mega experienced after the build, that is for sure, but I do think most learn from the experience.

I agree. I think a lot of people jump into LFS without actually knowing what they are getting into and what it stands for/wants to accomplish. Once they find out that it is a lot harder then most expect, they quit (like you, I don't have hard evidence for this.)

For me the fun part started the second time I build LFS (a day or so after my first successful build). I now knew how the book approached the build and how everything was set up and was able to change things to my liking (with all the problems that arose from that, but that's what I consider the fun part ).

After building LFS you have a fully working CLI environment on which you can build other stuff (not limited to BLFS). LFS is not a minimal Linux install, so I do wonder which unneeded stuff you are talking about.

I can't never get passed Chapter 4 of the book, so I give up. I surely wish I could get it complete. I do try again after awhile, I would like to have one done.

Good luck with it.
