Did you set the area you are in, then set locale time, Then you set the keyboard to what you use, The page you are at confirms what it is using you should just click ok. This is for use while building the system.

I'm currently building 6.8 (latest stable) and using the latest Gentoo LiveDVD 11.0 as the host. You have a nice GUI to 1) read the PDF or HTML version of the book, 2) have a Terminal opened to do the work and 3) while things compile (especially gcc or glibc) you can switch workspaces and surf or play games. ;-)

If you read through the replies up above, the answer to your question is either the current LfS release or Slackware. The current live cd is probably the more logical option as it will be referenced from the LfS book, but after reading through the Book closely you will be best placed to know which is best for you.

Welcome to LQ.

If the choice is limited to either of those: The one you are most familiar with. Both do need some tinkering to get them compliant as host for LFS.

If other distro's are also welcome then I would suggest Slackware, which is compliant out of the box (true for the latest Slackware/LFS versions).

Not sure what you are asking/telling us.

Using a live CD to build LFS comes with a few extra steps which aren't mentioned in the book. Every time you restart (reboot) you will need to re-create the lfs user and (when you get there) the virtual kernel file systems need to be remounted (there might be more).

Making a liveCD from your freshly build LFS system is not part of the (B)LFS books. I don't have experience with it, but I do believe there are some threads present in the LFS forum that might be helpful.

BTW: The LFS liveCD cannot be used as host to build the current stable LFS versions.

Slackware is the most recommended.

Having built on both, I felt Debian is the relatively cleaner choice.

If you are not averse to not using a gui, then Id recommend using arch or slackware(I havent tested it though). Setting up Arch is a good exercise for a first time LFSer to get prepared for the LFS build.

Last time I checked the default Slackware installation came with several WMs/DEs.

Druuna actually confirmed it today that ONLY Slackware is LFS build-ready compliant out-of-the-box.

Debian and other distributions have to be made compliant by installing several required patches and relinking the Shell from DASH back to BASH.

Having finally used SalixOs, a derivative of Slackware, I must comment that it is simply the best host system!

I just did the same thing DeeGee. I used SalixLive 13.37 and built my LFS 7.4 install again on a new hard drive.

I'm technically done except for installing the kernel, and the extra recommended packages, and the bootloader.
