@atul.verma.maa@gmail.com: Have a look here: 5.3. General Compilation Instructions (second important box).

This is also true once you reach chapter 6 (although the /mnt/lfs part isn't used any more).

spiky0011 is correct.

Do make sure that the patch doesn't throw an error while applying it.

You will build lfs to the end which will give you a basic bootable system from there you can move onto blfs when you start that you install a few inital packages but then you can build what ever you want.
You can even go off from the book and get stuff from the net if you want to make it your own system.

What do you think customize means in this reference?

LFS is about building a Linux system from "nothing". The end product is a bare, basic Linux system, that could be used to build upon (BLFS would be the next logical step).

It will not be like any of the other distro's out there. In my opinion LFS is not a distro (LFS+BLFS might be).

LFS is about the following:
- LFS teaches people how a Linux system works internally
- Building LFS produces a very compact Linux system
- LFS offers you added security
- LFS is extremely flexible

Hi

Can you start a new thread for this plz, And I dont think asking a lfs member to help is good etiquette.
Members are volunteers here.

Also more info is required where you are in the book chapter etc, and commands you have run
