Making a bootable rescue-disk/mini-distro CD with LFS?


I thought it'd be a fun project to make myself a rescue CD just in case something goes wrong with my system.
Is it possible with LFS?

Yes. You could add LFS to the "distributions" that LifeBoat supports.

So just make an LFS partition, 'chroot' to it and run the scripts?
I don't personaly use LFS. I was just wondering if it was possible to simply make my own customized rescue CD.

Sorry, I misunderstood your post. LifeBoat makes a customized rescue CD from the system that it is run on. So if you are running Slackware then you can use LifeBoat to make your own
personalized Slackware based rescue CD.

If you wanted to make a LFS rescue CD then you would have to run LifeBoat on a LFS system. LifeBoat has some distribution dependent code. LifeBoat suports Slackware but not LFS. So you would have to create the LFS dependent LifeBoat code before it would work on a LFS system.

My answer to your first post should have been:
If you are running Slackware then you can use LifeBoat to make your own
personalized Slackware based rescue CD and you don't need LFS.

Are you using Internet Explorer? IE deliberately only comes somewhat close to complying with XML standards. Try using a browser other than IE.

Microsoft's fix for their standards problem is to label web sites "Best viewed with Internet Explorer".
