LFS sources


I want to start LFS, and I was wondering if I used the source provided by another distro, say slackware, will my LFS be compatible with that distro? So I could build and use .tgz packages on my Slack 9.1 machine and use them on my LFS? Thanks for the help.

First you would want to install LFS and from source. Then you could always add the pkg tools for Slackware to install Slackware based (tgz) files and such. But no, as far as I know, you can't start out by compiling LFS from tgz packages.

Regards.

Sorry, I think I might have posted wrong. I dont want to use .tgz packages to start the install. Slackware has the source code for the different packages on cd's 3 and 4. Could I use those to make my LFS more compatible with Slackware.

The source should be the same wherever it comes from. You should really use all the versions that the book gives you though, because just the smallest change can mess things up later on. As for compiling on Slack and then using on LFS, you would be better off compiling everything on your LFS system or using the package tools as trickykid says.
