Just started my LFS, Got a question


I'm using slack as my build os, and have all the development tools installed from cd. All I installed was the default from the base system, all the packages in development, and kernel source for 2.4.5.

My question is is there anything extra that i might need to do a LFS 3.1

thanks, i did have a prob with compile of bzip2. it errored out with cmp not found, so i reinstalled diffutils from slack cd and all went well. And i was worried about fileutils not compiling correctly but i think slack is higher then glibc-2.2.3 . The command $LFS/bin/ls worked correctly so i guess Im ok on that one to.

The slack cd will come in handy when you are finished with the lfs install.


There are a lot of tarballed source programs on it

Is that the real source, or the modified versions of software that Slackware uses? if so , you may not want all their modifications and would be better to just get the real (read: official) packages.
