Prereadings for LFS


In the LFS book there are a few books you should read before you start with the actual LFS process. I opened them and found out that they are all much longer than the LFS book itself. So now, my question is: are they all necessary, or are there specific chapters you can leave out.

Thanks

Hi,

Depending on your level of experience you could decide not to read the preliminary books and start with LFS. I never read them...... (up to you to decide if I'm lazy or experienced )
You should at least 'scan' The Essential Pre-Reading Hint.

If this is your first LFS install, you should read all of the LFS Book and do all the steps as mentioned in the LFS Book.

yep, 'll do that
lazy, or experienced? well, you're a senior member, so ...

i have some experience with bash and the command line, but reading al these books makes me feel like a complete fool. it might take a year of study to learn all of that. (I'm a student anyway, so some extra shouldn't be a problem)

thanks druuna
