Yeah I suppose your right, you do have 'just a little bit of help with LFS'.

DOH!

Sorry about that. Like taz said its great to have you around and keep up the great work. I recieve the mailing list from lfs-dev, which is great read on those blustery nights. Lets hope your brains don't get too picked or ther'll be nothing left!

Later.

Right now I do wht Isa does.. deleting unneeded files and directories from my distro install.

Once I get a new or bigger drive, I will start an LFS.

mines taking up 3.5 G right now

mostly because I am saving all the stuff I used to build it for now.
I am going to move it over soon.

Thanks for the help with this project.

Cool

Just did my first LFS install this weekend by doing the lame just follow instructions route but I'm already looking to whittle it down a bit this week & play what do I REALLY need to get things done efficiently & effectively.

Doing LFS really helps a newbie learn

I'm starting a new linux install.


It is going to be built on a clean computer from a bootable floppy by downloading everything.
Now I just need to think of a name for it.

Count me in as a LFS user. Only just started a couple of months ago but I'm loving it at the moment. Got X working but having a few probles with KDE. KDE 3.0 is what I want to install but moans about QT > 3.0.1 needed even though I just installed it as per INSTALL instructions. I'm sure I figure it out soon

Oh and Gerard, keep up the good work, wouldn't go back to another distribution now I'm using LFS.

trickylinux has a good ring to it.. :-)

QT...

do you have the exact version or is it newer.

I had updated some of my library files and ran into a problem like that.

I had to link the newer one to a link with the filename it was looking for.

It was a mozilla issue, but it sounds like a similar problem.


since this is a mixed post I will throw this in...

I just got offered a job in our IT group today, which means working out of an office. i can't really decide if I should do it because it might be a bit boring.


Any IT's got any idea.

Also the fact that I found a couple of spear heads and an arrow head at work today makes me think I should stay in the field.

You sound too intelligent for a simple IT job.. Unless its like my friends where you do nothing all day in which case it'd be great if your motivated to learn stuff on your lonesome..

You may be intersted in the blfs-support mailinglist (or blfs.support newsgroup on the news.linuxfromscratch.org server) and the online mailinglist archives for that list. Any problems you might get, there's a good chance somebody else already had that problem/question so using the archives (search engine at http://search.linuxfromscratch.org) would be the quickest way to get an answer
