My experiments with linux from scratch and linux from script !!!


The past few days I have been trying to setup my very own linux from scratch system. Became successful.

Then I found 'linux from script'. It takes out the tedious and sometimes risky job of inputting all the commands yourself.

But linux kernel does not get installed and xorg does not function properly using lfscript.


Any suggestions welcome !!!

If you want an automated build system, why not choose one of the source based distributions (Gentoo, CRUX, Lunar, SourceMage, ...) or one of the building toolkits (T2, Rock, Buildroot, ...)?

Seems like a duplicate, or continuation of https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...an-4175509267/
