- Perhaps you can give me some words of encouragement aswell.
I read a few of the LFS threads and it sounds like keeping the system up to date is a big issue (i.e.: takes a lot of free time) but my reason for trying out LFS is this;
I was in search for a thin distro to install in which i could try out the new version of gnome. I do not like KDE and im sick of finding a 'distro' that will get me half way there (lets say it has SOMe updated packages but not all) I want to create a thin, very solid GNOMe desktop machine for web/mail/music playback while serving a small website and ftp.
Just sick and tired of weeding through all the conf's mandrake/RH, etc. seem to modify into complete foobar.
Would you recommend LFS for the creation of a solid, light -weight desktop machine? - lots of pages to read, need to do many things i've never even touched, need some encouragement!
