A week or thereabouts, but I did it slowly and had other things to do. Haven't installed X or anything like that yet, not enough time but since SuSE is doing my head in with it's failure to detect my USB mouse I might give it ago soon (and forget about all the work! ).

About to start another one, as I don't like my partition setup and need to reinstall a few things and such, but just the base book, takes me about a good day or so. I still prefer to hand type most of the commands from Ch6. For Ch5, I was lucky enough to get to try a fellow LFS users scripts, so that really isn't any work for me at all

Well, I just built LFS again, on my new computer. Took about 5-6 hours, spread over two days on a Duron 950 with 256 MB Ram.

That includes all the reading, and other stuff I was doing at the time as well, so I would imagine that if I timed the build process alone, it would be more like 2-3 hours start to finish.

I used the current CVS version. Not much has changed except that the packages have been updated. Now my dhcp client is wonky again, and I don't remember how I fixed it the first time. Oh well...
