Who has done LFS w/Slackware?


Is there someone in the forum who has completed LFS with Slackware? I'm currently trying to do it with Slackware 10.1 running the 2.6.10 kernel. I just want to know if there are any things specific to the kernel or the OS that I need to do extra or watch out for.

Not sure what you mean. You mean LFS with Slack as a host distro or... well, whatever the hell I just did. I built one LFS with Slack as a host distro, just following the book for the most part except for substituting lilo and bsd-inits and so on. But this was awhile ago on a 2.4 kernel. No problems. Slack's a pretty ideal environment. Then, just now, I kept one eye on an LFS book - some testing/unstable/cvs something and one eye on the Slackware source tree and my third eye on my own ideas and seem to have constructed a kind of Pslack, or pseudo-Slack. It's definitely *not* Slackware and definitely *not* LFS. I dunno what it is, but I think I like it. Only problem I had there that wasn't of my own doing was that my module-init-tools segfaulted on booting into my system. Turns out to be high irony - if you do 'make check' or 'make tests' to make sure that your module-init-tools *work*, that makes sure they're *broken*. You may be able to run 'make clean' between 'make check' and 'make install' or do what I did and skip the check on a recompile and reinstall. Now they work. This was under 2.6 and I haven't noticed anything else to watch out for.

I was running 10.1 Slack when I installed LFS 6.1. Slackware turned out to be a great environment to build a LFS system. The only thing I did was to first install the 2.6.10 kernel package and the gcc 3.4.3 package into Slack. BTW, don't you think it's funny that LQ uses M$ Visual Basic scripting for these forums? Maybe the site's being hosted on a IIS server

It's a conspiracy. M$ is keeping track of what Linux is doing by phoning home.

In seriousness, my binutils isn't installing after adjusting the linker in Ch6. I've been advised to just start over from scratch again. I'm wondering if I did something wrong in Ch 6 or did I screw up somewhere in Ch 5 and I really do need to start over.

I think I'll just go ahead and start over.

And what makes you think that? And last time I checked.. its running: LQ httpd serv (_LNX) which is totally customized by Jeremy... I think originally starting off with Apache..

And the forums were originally vBulletin but they've been hacked on so much by Jeremy, he could probably call it his own forum software, which is mainly PHP based.. so not sure what you mean by LQ being run or uses Microsoft Visual Basic scripting...

My bad . I assumed vB meant Visual Basic. That's what I get for thinking, I guess. Sorry, Jeremy .
