Thanking to yourselves I am making my way in LFS. I recently solved the following issues:
1. install nVidia drivers
for my old TNT2 Vanta (installer complained about not finding Linux headers).
2. see graphic files in Gnome
(I blindly followed GTK+2 build instructions and compiled it "--without-libjpeg --without-libtiff").
3. see USB memory stick
(I didn't enable "SCSI drive support" in the kernel)
4. have ALSA save and restore volumes after reboot
(had to reconfigure kernel to have all sound-related things compiled as modules, and install "dialog")
Now there's one single thing not solved - X terminal displays some strange characters, e.g. when pressing "Backspace" or bringing up the previous typed command with "Arrow up". I posted
it before, but none of the advice helped.
I would be greatful if anyone's got a clue
