Hi,

Did you read post #3???

I've told you this twice already in this thread, but just to make sure:

Yes, it is time consuming, even if you copy and paste.

Hi,

Have a look here why you should use LFS and not the host+chrooted environment: building BLFS

Are you sure about that, 'cause I seriously doubt that.

If that's a problem, maybe LFS/BLFS isn't for you. Choosing to use something like LFS or Slackware or Gentoo is going to require more of your time to maintain the system. You should go into it with eyes wide open.

That said, I'll second all of druuna's advice. Also, if you built LFS in a virtual machine, you don't even need to install GPM and links on LFS as you can use your host machine's browser.

Too my knowledge the vmware tools make life a bit easier/smoother when interacting between (vmware)host and (vmware)client. The vmware tools aren't needed on LFS (I even doubt if you could install them at this stage).

I've regularly installed LFS using a virtual machine and I never install/need the vmtools (depending on what I want to do I do install them when (B)LFS is installed).

Hope this helps.
