I've been using Linux for maybe 6 months or so now; and I'm getting into building my first LFS. I'm enjoying the process on the whole, and I'm keen to get everything up and running.
However, I've run into a bit of a stumbling block. Although I'm happy to install the base system as-is, I'd like to use a package manager to keep things tidy once I have a working install. Ideally, I'd like to use pkg-tools, since a) i prefer simpler tools in general, and b) i'm familiar with them already as my current distro is Vector Linux, which is based on Slack.
I see that others have adopted Slack's tools for LFS:
--==++ I would post the url but the forum won't let me
However, this advice is based on version 1.3.2 of pkg-tools. From searching these fora, I see that people have tried later versions of pkg-tools, but apparently without success. Whilst I'm happy to go with 1.3.2 if that is the best/only solution, I'd prefer to use a later version, or at least understand why the later versions won't work!
So. My question is -- has anyone got later versions of pkg-tools working? If so, how?
Any advice gratefully received!
