Starting BLFS without wget
LFS-6.8 build completed using lfslivecd-x86-6.3-r2160-min. This is the only OS on the computer.
My computer boot correctly and i'm able to ping google. I started reading BLFS.
The question is: How i start to download without wget or how to install wget on this fresh LFS?
Assuming, you are using Links or Lynx, you can of course use that browser for downloading.
When using Links (my preferred first browser on a new system),
you can type "d" to download the currently selected link.
(Or type <Esc> to open the menu ...)
If not set otherwise, the file will be downloaded to the folder that was current, when the browser was started.
Links can also be used to browse through your file system.
(Somewhat easier than only using cd and ls ;-))
When building LFS systems, I always watched those tips from
9.3. Rebooting the System
first, then links.
This way links will get mouse support by default.
I set Text margin to 1 in the Html options, so that I can get the unmodified code copied.
(Else there might be some extra spaces or similar,
that can sometimes be disruptive.)
If not having any tool for accessing the internet
on the new system yet (lynx, links, curl, wget, ...),
I would find a way to access the required sources
by some other means.
Perhaps by downloading them with a life cd,
then install what is needed/wanted, the usual way...
I hope that helps.
[too] quickly reboot at that point.
The price for giving in at that temptation, is a less elegant start
to get that new system equipped with more nice and useful stuff. ;)
(That might on the other hand imply some more intense learning experiences ...)
Some possible procedures ... are of course described in the blfs book.
I'll suggest one of probably many ways of fixing this:
you also should have the blfs-bootscripts (f.e. for gpm).
Thanks for your advices. I can now copy & paste, surf and download.
