Making a Distro with LFS


Hi I was wondering if it is possible to use anaconda with LFS, to create my own distro. If so can you point me towards someone who has done it, or how to do it. THANKS IN ADVANCE

have you built an LFS system yet??
AFTER you build, then it's easier to decide what package manager you may want..........the LFS hints page has a hint pertaining to package managers ..........

Ofcourse it is check out the hints http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/hints/read.html

You can also create your own livecd.

If you have build the LFS base system go further with BLFS http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/ , and install what you want.
With BLFS you don't have to follow the book like LFS.

Here
http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/hint.../files/apt.txt <APT GET
http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/hint...files/paco.txt <PACO

But first try to sucessfully build a LFS system, do it one step at a time.

Anaconda's source and information on using it can be obtained here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Anaconda

(I think I might try doing this with my distro too.)
Note: the source comes in rpms unless you do cvs. I used Midnight Commander to copy the tar.bz2 out of it.
